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.
