About the Author

 This delightful collection contains memorable stories penned by Garrison Keillor, Roger Welsch, E.B. White, Patricia Penton Leimbach, Bill Holm, Ben Logan, Jim Heynen, Sara De Luca, Marjorie Myers Douglas, Jerry L. Twedt, and Robert Amerson. Contemporary farm photography and artwork from Grant Wood, Bob Artley, Charles Freitag, and Francis Lee Jaques accompany and complement (compliment) the text.  These stories are nostalgic, sentimental, and sometimes humorous, all paying homage to life on the farm.

Format: Paperback
If you're a fan of vintage tractors, a farmer, or a collector, THIS OLD TRACTOR: A TREASURY OF VINTAGE TRACTORS AND FAMILY FARM MEMORIES is for you. Plenty of black and white and color photos throughout keep the vintage and modern tractor shots captivating for browsing or study, while recollections by farmers and tractor workers bring back memories of activities and concerns surrounding them. Celebrations of generations of farmers provide essays ranging from a husband's efforts to get more tractors on his farm under his wife's very nose to the experience of threshing day.

Ordered this for my farmer Dad for his birthday and he immediately dove right in and loved it, showing us pictures and reading us some of the stories as he worked his way thru the book!
