<DIV><DIV><p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">Farm Industry News, November 2007

<p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">“Sander’s work … comes close to earning the elusive label of ‘definitive.’  This large-format, beautifully photographed book is perfect for general browsing. After a smartly written first chapter hailing the rise of the tractor as an example of ‘muscles to motors,’ Sanders provides thorough histories of the major and minor tractors organized by manufacturer … The photography is first-rate and the Sanders’ prose is clear. The chapters on such stalwarts as Allis-Chambers, J.I. Case, International Harvester and John Deere are impressive surveys … An excellent book for those who know that tractors embody more than metal.”

FFA New Horizons, December 2007
"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 of tractors."

<p class="MsoBodyText" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">“Tractor lovers will appreciate the photography and the nuts and bolts information on each tractor.”

</DIV> --New Horizons

Reading The Farm Tractor is as comfortable as visiting with an old friend. You can start at the beginning, or drop in at any point. Artfully designed, the book is a showcase of Ralph Sanders world-class photography...But The Farm Tractor is more than just another pretty face. With more than 40 years experience, the author knows his stuff...Carefully researched, beautifully photographed, thoughtfully designed: The book is worthy of a second look.-- --Farm Collector, November 2009

Book Description

Now 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.

This book is large (lots of pages) and seems to have a lot of information about the history of farm tractors. A perfect gift for my father. It did take quite a long time to arrive - but was within the parameters of what the seller said for shipment. He is happy with it.
