The book includes chapters on early cheese making in Manitoba, Manitoba Dairy Administration, cheese factories in the Franco-Manitoba and Mennonite communities and the role of women in the cheese factories.

Friesen, Isidore Villeneuve, Archibald Wright and William Hollingworth -- all who played a significant role in the story of cheese making in Manitoba.
