Local historian Gordon Goldsborough has spent the last few months gathering more stories of Manitoba's abandoned places, exploring forgotten treasures in tucked away in rural areas.
And now, he's releasing a second, 280-page book full of abandoned sites around the province.
More Abandoned Manitoba builds on the premise of Goldsborough's first book.
But this time, he says he wanted to dig more into the backstory of these sites and more rural areas.
"I'm a child of rural Manitoba. I love rural Manitoba, the places, the people." he said.
"And what bothers me is you encounter people, particularly here in Winnipeg, who think the known universe ends at the Perimeter Highway."
"I think if they see all the wonderful things you can see in rural Manitoba, and the interesting things, they may want to see it for themselves," he said.
Goldsborough is holding events in small towns and cities throughout Manitoba, such as Dauphin and Gimli.
More Abandoned Manitoba officially launches Thursday at McNally Robinson Grant Park.
