This is the story of how the burden of labor was shifted from human and animal to machine in North America, and how the steam traction engines of the early 1880s developed into modern articulated, four-wheel drive monsters with more than 500 horsepower, air conditioned cabs and onboard computers. Tractors are featured from John Deere, Case, International Harvester, Ford, Ferguson, Allis-Chalmers, Caterpillar, Minneapolis-Moline, Oliver, Steiger and others, with commentaries on each. Whether you're a farmer, a lover of machines or simply someone interested in the history of American and Canadian agriculture, this book will give you a new perspective on the huge influence of the tractor on the culture of our farms.
