Abandoned: Towns Without People

Similarly, why would a group of Native Americans who had spent years carving a hidden village into the side of a rocky plateau leave their dwellings? In this compelling series, readers will learn all about unique, historic towns that have suddenly or mysteriously been abandoned. Dramatic, true stories and spooky tales will keep students on the edge of their seats as they trace the history of the town and learn about why it was abandoned. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the exciting stories. Written in narrative format, this series is sure to keep readers hungry for more exciting real-life tales.
