'In lively style, this book tells the whole story of the region from the rugged past to the sophisticated present. The narrative moves through all those generations who made Victor Harbor what it is today, and it is packed with such colourful personalities as Albert Warland, the loud-voiced leader of the people for more than 50 years. It is a tale of continuous high hopes for the future, of poverty and prosperity, of great endeavors defeated by the march of time and, above all, of human beings who worked, dreamed, suffered and played their way through the years of an Australian community. The book is one to be read for entertainment as well as information, and it is enhanced by a splendid collection of more than 250 paintings, drawings and photographs old and new, 90 of which are in full colour.'
