For many farmers their tractor is almost a part of the family, and this big book — paying homage to farm life, farm families, and to classic farm tractors — is the ultimate oral and visual tribute to this “family member.
The text is made up of humorous and sentimental tractor stories, essays, and memories about such momentous events as a first tractor, learning to drive a tractor, and the art of collecting and restoring tractors. Written by well-known tractor historians (Leffingwell, Sanders, Pripps, Wendel, Vossler, Macmillan, and CBS Sunday Morning’s Roger Welsch), the text is accompanied by paintings, 85 full-color photos of machines and tractor toys, and reprints of tractor ads, catalogs and magazine covers.
These nostalgia-filled pages are sure to bring back warm memories of cherished days spent on the family farm. Tractor buffs, folks interested in farming or collectibles, and anyone who grew up on a farm, will cherish this collection devoted to the classic farm tractor.
