Lost Civilizations – 10 Societies that
Vanished Without a Trace Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
 
Michael Rank’s “Lost Civilizations – 10 Societies that Vanished Without a Trace”
Oma just loves reading about history. History is a means to understand both the past and present. It supports the foundation of an informed tomorrow!

When the opportunity presented itself to read and review Michael Rank’s “Lost Civilizations – 10 Societies that Vanished Without a Trace” Oma happily accepted the challenge.

The book title leads the reader to believe this book to be an arid textbook. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The short ninety-five page book is handily organized into ten chapters; one chapter on each of the Lost Civilizations explored.

This book discusses the cultures of the ten greatest lost civilizations in history. Some were millennia ahead their neighbors, such as the Indus Valley Civilization, which had better city planning in 3,000 B.C. than any European capital in the 18th century. Others left behind baffling mysteries, such as the Ancient Pueblo Peoples (formerly known as the Anasazi), whose cliff-dwelling houses were so inaccessible that every member of society would have to be an expert-level rock climber.

Michael Rank’s “Lost Civilizations – 10 Societies that Vanished Without a Trace” is a quick read divided into bite-size analysis of not only the civilization lost but the possible explanations for their disappearance.


My only negative comment would be this book’s lacked illustration. As a personal preference, Oma would have savored some drawings, photographs, and/or maps to augment the fascinating historical tales.

If you appreciate a good mystery surrounded by history – you will love Michael Rank’s “Lost Civilizations – 10 Societies that Vanished Without a Trace” as much as Oma did.
