REVIEW: Lost Civilizations by Michael Rank

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

This book highlights 10 civilizations that have vanished throughout history. If you have any interest in history, you would like this. As I read about each civilization, I also thought this would be a great book for students in history class or those researching any of these groups. 
I am fascinated by history, so I dove in when I received the book for this review. It is very well written without being so complicated that it can't be understood and I was very surprised to learn new things about people and civilizations that I thought I knew. I don't want to spoil any of it, but the stroy of Christopher Columbus could be much different than we learned in school! I also learned about a few civilizations and people that I had never heard of before! Michael Rank gives us a glimpse into these cultures and their way of life. Some of the things they did seem strange and the theories as to why they performed certain rituals or tasks the way they did, sets you mind to imagining how differently life was at these various points in history. Lost Civilizations takes you on a trip through time to visit these people and see highlights of how they lived and where they lived. Juxtaposed with our own way of life makes these cultures so interesting! You have to wonder what it must have been like. Adding to the fascinating mental imagery is the fact that all of these civilizations just vanished. Whether all at once or in a gradual fashion, they are gone, leaving only clues, scant information and mysteries that beg to be solved. 
I would recommend Lost Civilizations: 10 Societies that Vanished Without A Trace to anyone that is a history buff, a student learning about ancient history or even a kid that likes to read! It's a nice read that adults as well as kids can get into.
