Summary
"Auckland started as a town of mud and clay, but is now a gracious city astride the Waitemata. Instrumental in this change has been the role of engineers. It is they who have provided the innovation and initiatives that will ensure it remains the commercial captial of New Zealand. In this extensively illustrated book it is the engineers themselves, responsible for building Auckland's facilties, who tell the remarkable story of their profession's involvement in almost every aspect of the growth of Auckland since 1840 ... The personal stories and the historical details covered make [this book] an important and fascinating account of the many facets of Auckland's development, often unknown except to those who have worked on the projects ..." -- Back cover
