From remote farmhouses to urban factories, ALBERTA: FORGOTTEN PLACES AND HISTORIES tells the stories behind forgotten and abandoned structures throughout the province.

Authors Chris Doering and Connie Biggart focus on their home province of Alberta in this beautifully presented book, blazing down dusty backroads to discover ghost towns, crumbling ruins, farms reclaimed by nature, and shuttered businesses. Some sites are open to the public, but others are on private property and rarely visited.

In Alberta: Forgotten Places and Histories the authors have done extensive research to discover the past of over 50 forgotten places, combining historic and contemporary photos to allow readers a window into the past.
