"The history of farming over the past century is dominated by the development of its most important component — the farm tractor. Today's high-tech farm tractor can trace its roots back to the late 19th century From the invention of steam traction engines and portable gas engines, the tractor began a slow, awkward growth. By the 1920s, the tractor market boomed as America began its conversion from an agricultural to an urban nation. A second wave of tractor development in the 1950s assisted the rapidly growing country's transformation. Indeed, without the farm tractor America could never have grown as it has.
"This book traces both the development of the farm tractor, and the changes in the tractor industry Over 80 full-color photographs chronicle the history of the quintessential element of mechanized agriculture, the farm tractor."
This is an ex-library copy, so it has the usual library markings (but there are no library markings on the dust jacket). While the dust jacket has some rubs and scuffs, the book's binding is strong and the inside pages are complete, clean and unmarked. This book shows typical signs of very light use.
