100 Years of Vintage Farm Tractors: A Century of Tractor Tales and Heartwarming Family Farm Memoriesby Michael Dregni, Roger Welsch (Foreword by)
100 Years of Vintage Farm Tractors is a heartwarming anthology paying tribute to a century of vintage farm tractors from Poppin’ Johnnies to Minne-Mos, from Farmalls to Fordsons. Included are stories by Justin Isherwood (horse versus tractor farming), Bill Holm (our faith in machinery), Hamlin Garland (threshing days), Patricia Penton Leimbach (a farmwife's view of tractors), Loren Paine (tractors as "man things"), Jerry Apps (homemade tractors), Orlan Skare (the agony and ecstasy of tractor seats), as well as the famous first story of super salesman Alexander Botts and the Earthworm Tractor by William Upson Hazlett. Fabulous artwork perfectly complements the text, creating the ideal tribute to tractors; it includes many newly discovered paintings by Walter Haskell Hinton, cartoons by Bob Artley, and photographs by Andrew Morland, Ralph Sanders, and others.
