In Wisconson, people have found the remnants of a highly cultural civilazatoin. But somewhere along the way, it stopped, and it's people vanished. This book taked you in depth as to the artifacs, building remains, old maps....ect.

It's VERY interesting. Makes you wish we could have seen Aztalan in all it's glory. Many people today don't think Native American's had much advancement, but this hidden city proves them wrong. I wonder how many ancient civilazations and towns are under out feet.
