The author starts off by stating that "the subjects of this book, are, I believe, some of unsung heroes that diligently day and day plied their trade without expectations of fame and fortune. These men were the backbone of Western Australia. They were the tradesmen and workers, the shipbuilders and shipwrights, without whom the progress of exploration, coastal settlement, fisheries and trade would have been greatly hampered.

This history of the shipbuilders, boatbuilders and shipwrights of Western Australia presents personal and business details on over 300 artisans and the myriad of vessels. Also included are over 200 photos, letters and documents to illustrate their endeavours.
