Little Book of Tractors is a celebration of the pioneers and innovators whose names have become synonymous with tractors - Henry Ford and his "Fordson", Harry Ferguson and the "Little Grey Fergie", John Deere, Farmall and David Brown to name just a few.
This colourful book charts the history of these companies and their incredibly inventive machines as well as showing how takeovers and mergers have resulted in the loss of the majority of these historic names.
Little Book of Tractors also takes a look at unusual tractor designs and specialist tractors, tractor trials, farming implements, and what future challenges face manufacturers as they work to make their tractors more cost efficient and less polluting than ever before.
But most of all this affectionate tribute shows how tractors have not only been indispensable to farmers but become part of the fabric of country life, dearly loved by the people.
