The Best of John Deere
This one-of-a-kind guide describes the history of John Deere. When the founder and blacksmith John Deere hammered out his first plow from a broken sawmill blade in 1837, he was responding to a need, and in the process creating enormous opportunity not just for himself, but for every farmer working the soil in those early days of settling America. Inside you’ll find articles on the first John Deere tractors (Froelich and Dain), the Velie influence, Model E farm engines, and so much more.

Field Guide to Mystery Farm Tools, Vol. 2
We’ve all seen at least one in our lifetime. That rusty, worn-looking antique tool that we can’t quite figure out: What does it do? Why was it made? What is it even called? This new edition includes more than 160 tools that have been identified and includes a small paragraph explaining what the tool was used for! You’ll read how to identify tools yourself using patents, online collector resources, and books and publications for collectors.
As a student of the past, Sam Moore learned his lessons well. Paying careful attention to instructions from his elders, he not only learned the old ways but gained a full appreciation for them. Deeply researched and beautifully written, Moore's essays recapture a time irretrievably lost - but easily glimpsed through the pages of this exciting edition.
