The Steam Tractor Encyclopedia (Book) AUD $70.00

Until the mid-nineteenth century, human effort and horse power determined what a farm could produce.  Around mid-century, ingenuity had its day, and the steam engine began to play an ever-greater role in farm life. 

This book tells the story of that amazing transformation and of the gigantic steam tractors that hauled agriculture into the modern era. Before the advent of lightweight gasoline engines, steam tractors were met with awe.  Even today, at threshing bees, county fairs, and tractor shows, these remarkable machines command outsize respect.  This book gives readers and tractor fans a chance to linger over every detail of these marvelous—and now, all too rare—machines.

Richly illustrated and meticulously detailed, each entry brings to the fore a steam tractor that in its day transformed the business of farming acre by acre and day by day.
