Here for the first time in one place are highlights of how Deere & Company turned a vision, painstaking research, and more than a century of experience into a full line of high performance tractors and equipment. Dramatic events, from the historic 1960 Deere Day in Dallas to the unveiling of the Sound-Gard body in Waterloo and the introduction of the Max-Emerge planter in Moline, are presented in straightforward firsthand accounts by Roy E. Harrington, long-time Deere engineer, now retired, and Don Macmillan, author of Volume One, John Deere Tractors and Equipment. --George W. Wormley, Machinery Editor, Farm Journal 1952-1982
