This beautifully illustrated book is a result of the photographer-come-author's dedication to the tractor and its development. Enthusiastic support has been given from many sources throughout Australia.
From the early 19th century the horse gave way to mechanisation. As a result Australia has utilised tractors to satisfy all day to day farming needs.
This book encapsulates many of the early makes and models of tractors which have served in rural areas across Australia, bringing them to life with colourful photographs, interesting specifications and anecdotal accounts of their use. Examples of early advertisements add interest to the tractor story whilst using words and illustrations of a bye-gone era.
