Summary

Summary

Not only is "The John Deere Tractor Legacy" published under license of Deere & Company, it is edited by the world's most respected and best known John Deere historian and expert--Don Macmillan--so readers know they can rely on its information. This comprehensive history of the man, his company, and his legacy includes a biography of John Deere, plus excerpts from the writings of Deere engineers and historians, such as Wayne Broehl, Harold Brock, and Orrin Miller. Images are from the Deere archives, as well as from noted tractor photographer Ralph W. Sanders. Readers will find never-before-published material in "The John Deere Tractor Legacy," including compelling accounts of the development of the Waterloo Boy, the Johnny Popper, and the New Generation tractors. Readers will also discover the importance of the work that Deere did for the U.S. Army in World War II and how it helped the company to become the number-one tractor manufacturer in the world. Coverage of plows, implements, combines, cars, snowmobiles, lawn and garden tractors, and bicycles is also included.
