The Classic American Farm Tractor: From the Beginnings To 1960
Halsey’s youth when he wrote this (17) worked in his favor. He didn’t make assumptions about my farming background and explained each component in greater detail than other Tractor books I’ve read. I wish I had read this book first, as Halsey chronologically covers only the ‘important‘ tractors by major manufacturers; explaining why they were important and giving just enough background so you don’t get lost.
My only complaint were the photos. Halsey sourced them from various photographers and over-enlarged the photos.
