A fascinating book. Not only is it a complete history of the development of the Wheat industry from 1900 to the present day - social, financial and political - but a series of photographs of old and new machinery, many of them in colour, makes this a unique volume in itself. This book should be in every High School and University so that following generations may understand the courage of those pioneers who, with most primitive equipment and living conditions, developed vast acres of inhospitable land to the prosperous Western Australian wheatbelt of today.
