about this item

The great Kananaskis flood of 2013 came with no warning. The rains started late in the afternoon of June 19 and didn’t let up until June 23. Rivers and creeks, swollen to unprecedented size and fury cut off the towns of Canmore and Exshaw and flooded the village of Bragg Creek. Calgary’s premier recreation playground. Kananaskis Country, was devastated: Roads, bridges, infrastructures and trails were washed away, leaving tourists and business owners stranded. After a massive evacuation the whole of Kananaskis Country was shut down.This is the story in words and photographs of the flood showing the event itself, the aftermath and assessment of damage and the rebuilding phase that is still ongoing three years later. Of particular interest are pictures taken before and after the landscape changed.All proceeds from the book will be going towards trail rebuilding.
