Description

The Magic of Old Tractors is an historical record of classic tractors, their owners and their enthusiasts, as well as a personal account of the author's many experiences in this area.  It features rare and unusual tractors in impressive color photographs, many of which have never been published before, accompanied by text that describes the machines' individual histories. The Magic of Old Tractors is a must-read for 'afficionados', as well as anyone with an interest in antique machinery, mechanics, or the rapidly disappearing history of our farms.


About the Author

Facing History and Ourselves is an international educational and professional development organization whose mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry. By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, students make connections between history and the moral choices they confront in their own lives.

Ian M. Johnston’s interest in tractors was kindled at an early age when, as a young schoolboy, he was reared in the midst of a farming community located on the east Coast of Scotland.

Ian has eight books all on the subject of old tractors devoured by his fans around the globe and hundreds of magazine articles read by farmers and classic tractor enthusiasts.
