Overview

John Deere: Yesterday & Today is a comprehensive history of the uniquely American John Deere & Company—from its 19th-century beginnings to its position today as a global-manufacturing powerhouse.

John Deere has been a major player in the evolution of industrialized American labor and large-scale agriculture. The company's tractors and other machines are used worldwide—on large and small farms, in forests, on construction sites, and even in suburban driveways. The public's passion for John Deere is apparent not just on the company's balance sheet, but also in the array of licensed consumer items available, such as clothing, toys, tin signs, and clocks.

This handsome hardcover book chronicles the complete John Deere story, starting with blacksmith John Deere's revolutionary steel plow in 1837 and onward to the company's entry into the tractor business and its success today. John Deere: Yesterday & Today is organized by historical periods, with highlights of significant events and trends included in each chapter. Lively, expertly written text and hundreds of vibrant color images of tractors, memorabilia, portraits, and artifacts help bring this American success story to life.

    I gave it to my 4 year old grandson who lives in Iowa.

    He has more John Deere toys almost as much as a regular farmer. Or maybe more. As he gets older I know he will read and enjoy. At present he matches the toys he has to the pictures. His grandmother owns a farm in IL.
