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

The result is an unparalleled look at the icon of American agriculture.
