The old buildings and historic places of British Columbia form a kind of "roadside memory," a tangible link with stories of settlement, change, and abandonment that reflect the great themes of BC's history. Michael Kluckner began painting his personal map of the province in a watercolour sketchbook. In 1999, after he put a few of the sketches on his website, a network of correspondents emerged that eventually led him to the family letters, photo albums, and memories from a disappearing era of the province. Vanishing British Columbia is a record of these places and the stories they tell, presenting a compelling argument for stewardship of regional history in the face of urbanization and globalization.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Vanishing British Columbia gives us our province as it was, even as it's changing into something else.

--Vancouver Sun

Vanishing British Columbia uses words and images to examine ethnic sites and diverse roadside towns and worlds. Historic towns, houses, railways, and more are given strong social and historical treatment in a moving tribute to a vanishing world.

--Library Bookwatch and Internet Bookwatch

If regional history is of interest to you, you'll appreciate the rich treasure trove that is Kluckner's project-- at times it is like rummaging around in a forgotten drawer in your grandparents' basement.

--Tidepool
