"The story of Oakville's evolution from a mill at the mouth of the Sixteen (Mile Creek) to a thriving commercial harbour is told with humour, insight, and humanity. The growth of a community out of the wilderness is an inspiring tale of vision and hard work, told in first-hand accounts of events ranging from the first terrible winters to the coming of the first automobile. The men and women w h o b u i lt Oakville speak eloquently of their struggle and their triumph. A special 'Partners in Progress' section (by Jeffrey Charles Martin) details the businesses that have grown and thrived in Oakville through the years."
