Description


Travel with Gordon Goldsborough from Rapid City School to Mallard Lodge to Union Stockyards and many places in between as the author helps us reclaim some of our long-lost heritage. This full colour, richly illustrated book looks at abandoned sites around Manitoba, describing their features, what caused them to be abandoned, and what they tell us about the history of the province.
