International Harvester Tractors by Randy Leffingwell
From turn-of-the-century single-cylinder International Moguls through the bestselling mid-century Farmalls and todays giant four-wheel-drive models, this color history traces the saga of one of the best-known names in farm tractors. Leading tractor author and photographer Randy Leffingwell writes a compelling narrative of the company whose roots extend back to rival 19th century Chicago implement-makers McCormick and Deering, and in the process parallels more than a century of American agricultural heritage. Superb color photography of faithfully restored tractors, as well as a selection of rare archival images, evocatively illustrates the International Harvester story, depicting all the Farmall and I-H models that collectors have come to admire, as well as dozens of rare machines seldom seen today.
