Fact Book on Farm Power

Did you know that...

...Until the 1850's, American farmers planted corn by hand, the way the Indians had taught them?

...Peter Gaillard, of Lancaster, Pa., opened a new age for haying technology when he patented a horse-drawn machine for mowing grass in 1812?

...As the 20th Century opened, more than 5,000 steam traction engines were being manufactured in the U.S. each year?

If you know all that, or do not, there's far more you can learn in a new book called American Farm Tools...from Hand-Power to Steam-Power, by R. Douglas Hurt, Ohio farm historian.
