A beautifully illustrated look at the forces that help cities growâand eventually cause their destructionâtold through the stories of the great civilizations of ancient America.
You may think you know all of the American cities. But did you know that long before New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, or Boston ever appeared on the mapâthousands of years before Europeans first colonized North Americaâother cities were here? They grew up, fourished, and eventually disappeared in the same places that modern cities like St. Louis and Mexico City would later appear. In the pages of this book, you'll find the astonishing story of how they grew from small settlements to booming city centersâand then crumbled into ruins.
