Product description

Review

"A most useful addition to the literature on Deere and Company, and the environment in which the business operated."—Agricultural History Review

"Lucidly written ... an interesting picture of John and Charles in a concise and very readable book."—Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society

"[An] outstanding study in business history ... particularly illuminating on the close relations that bound industry to agriculture during the pioneering period of settlement in the Midwest. It is an enthralling story."—Indiana Magazine of History

About the Author

Jeremy Dahlstrom and Neil Dahlstrom, natives of "John Deere Country" in Moline, Illinois, tell this engaging, inspirational story of John and Charles Deere, shedding light on the two men as business partners and as a devoted father-and-son team. Historian David Vaught provides an introduction describing the role that Deere & Company played in the industrialization of American agriculture.
