During the first part of the 20th century Farmall tractors brought the Industrial Revolution to the farm. Farmalls played a key role in America's transformation from a primarily agrarian society to an industrialized nation. Author Lee Klancher weaves the story of the development of the Farmall with the story of the changing American farm. This book chronicles the Farmall's role in America's exodus from the farm and how those who stayed on the farm used modern equipment - particularly the Farmall tractor - and contemporary business practices to become the world's most efficient agricultural producers. Illustrated with a mix of rare archival color photographs and new color photography of restored and working farm tractors, this book is a unique look at the critical role International Harvester tractors played in one of the most dynamic eras in American history. 127pp.
