John Deere: A History of the Tractor by Randy Leffingwell

Acclaimed author and photographer Randy Leffingwell uses his unique brand of storytelling to chronicle this amazing company and the machines that have carried its distinctive green and yellow livery. With details gathered from exclusive interviews and access to John Deeres company archives, Leffingwell searched out collectors with restored tractors, or those in superb original condition, to illustrate his text with over 300 beautiful color photographs. Also throughout the book are a number of archival photographs and exclusive never-before-seen drawings and writings from the journals of Theo Brown, head of Deeres Plow Works experimental division from 1916 to 1952, as well as other key figures in John Deeres history through the last century. For any fan of John Deere tractors or the history of farming in America, this officially-licensed coffee-table book is a fantastic journey of an icon over 150 years in the making.
