101 Uses for an Old Farm Tractor

Reviewed by

Furrows of fun are planted on each page of this runt sized (51/2″ x 51/2″) book: 101 Uses for an Old Farm Tractor. Wry bons mots at page tops are hitched to a tractor picture and a caption. “Jungle Jim”: A threshing crew of fourteen men obscure the lines of a large steam traction engine in a 1931 picture. “Fishing Guide”: A Johnny Popper (a two-cycle John Deere that puffed a popping sound) with a manure spreader that “could double as a bait bucket” rests beside a fishing hole. “Family Pet”: members gather around and on a Ford NAA Golden Jubilee tractor.

In 101 Uses a crop of historical, unusual, and humorous tractor pictures are presented.

The tractor aficionado will harvest amusement.
