By D. Donovan, Editor/Sr. Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
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.
