The Farm Tractor
100 Years of North American TractorsBook - 2009
At last in paperback, here is the biggest, best, and most complete history of classic farm tractors. All North American models make their appearance--from John Deere and Farmall to fascinating "orphans" like the Iron Mule, from the late 1800s steamers through the high-powered workhorses of the 1970s. In addition to high-detail large-format photography, the volume includes 100 color and black-and-white archival photos, advertising posters, and brochures. The result is an unparalleled look at the icon of American agriculture. "Sander's work . . . comes close to earning the elusive label of 'definitive.' This large-format, beautifully photographed book is perfect for general browsing. . . . An excellent book for those who know that tractors embody more than metal." -- Farm Industry News "If you enjoy learning about the rich history of tractors, this book is for you . . . Besides its in-depth look at some of the rarest tractors ever made, the book also features more than 400 photos." -- FFA New Horizons
