Summary
In a journey to some of the eeriest and most desolate places on earth, Cal Flyn launches a luminous exploration into what happens to the places humans once inhabited, and have now left behind. Ranging from continent to continent, Flyn travels to islands in Scotland where the resident cows look at humans without recognition. She meets the scarce few people who returned to their homes in the radiation zones of Chernobyl. She sneaks into a political no-man's-land in Cyprus, a ghost town where the population were expelled so suddenly their dinner plates are still laid out on tables and armed guards police the perimeter. She visits Detroit, once America's fourth largest city, but which has lost two-thirds of its population in the last seventy years, leaving entirely vacant streets, competitive junkers and blight - an irrepressible urban decay
