Tractors are the subject of rightful fascination – living, breathing entities that are so much more than pieces of machinery. Over the course of a year, through all four seasons, tractor author, journalist and photographer par excellence Peter Love has captured more than 150 images of tractors old and new, elegant and workaday, large and small, from America to Britain and Ireland, to present this engrossing collection of tractors and crawlers of all sorts and in various stages of preservation.

Veteran, vintage and classic machines are all covered in some detail, together with the popular and thriving sales scene. Peter's keen sense of detail provides a thorough background to each photograph.

With a truly expert and informative text embracing the history, technical specifications and current status of the machines, this book will provide hours of joyful reading for the specialist, the enthusiast and the generally interested alike.

Peter Love was born into a family of farmers and photographers. As a professional and agricultural journalist he travels the world. He created Tractor & Machinery magazine which he edited until 2007, Classic and Vintage Commercials, Classic Tractor, Classic Plant & Machinery, and Old Tractor and Ford and Fordson Tractors magazines, the latter two which he edits today. In addition he is an editor at large on Classic Massey and Ferguson Enthusiast, Classic Plant and Machinery and a contributor to several others.
