Classic Oliver Tractors
James Oliver sold his first chilled plow in 1870--chilled because the cast iron was cooled quickly with water to harden the metal and strengthen the plow. And when Oliver Chilled Plow Works merged with the Hart-Parr Company in 1929, the might of capital, expertise, and engineering resources came together to create one of the most successful and revered small tractor manufacturers of all time. This book follows the Oliver tractor from its inception through its development over the years, until the last model rolled off the assembly line in 1976. A story of entrepreneurship and industry, of machinery and American know-how, this illustrated history captures the spirit of Oliver farm equipment as its tractors and crawlers, hay balers and threshers turned American farmland to gold. Throughout, brilliant color photographs and historical images bring the story of the Oliver tractor vividly and vibrantly to life.

Tractor: The Heartland Innovation, Ground-Breaking Machines, Midnight Schemes,
This rollicking ride into machine history follows the innovators, entrepreneurs and hucksters who transformed our world with farm machines. Starting with the turn-of-the-century visionaries who saw that four wheels and a motor could replace the horse, the book moves swiftly through key early developments to cover the power farming movement of the latter part of the 20th Century a time when major manufacturers lagged behind and independent builders and farmers began creating their own solutions with a pencil drawing and a welder. The book includes stories of the butcher shop where John Deere secretly designed a completely new line of four and six-cylinder tractors, to the skullduggery and corporate raiding that took place in fields and back lots as company agents schemed to discover what their dirty ol competition had up their sleeves. The book moves all the way up through the creation of the first tractor electronics, the merger movement of the 1980s, and the emergence of the high-technology innovations such as smart farms and auto-guidance which are changing the farm as we know it. With images from Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Dennis Stock, and many more as well as design drawings from Henry Dreyfuss, Raymond Loewy, Brooks Stevens and more, this raucous, heartfelt book shines a ...

South Bend Indiana (IN) (Images of America)
South Bend Indiana
The land now called St. Joseph County was familiar ground to Native Americans long before recorded history. Many Indians, including the local Potawatomie and Miami, trod the well-worn path that offered a two-mile portage between the St. Joseph River (and Lake Michigan) to the Kankakee River and eventually the Mississippi River. Pierre F. Navarre built a log cabin beside the St. Joseph River in 1820, and began a settlement that would eventually become South Bend and Mishawaka in St. Joseph County. The over 200 vintage images in this book, drawn from St. Joseph County and Mishawaka as well as South Bend, look back at the commerce, industry, and businesses like Studebaker, Ball Band, Singer, and Bendix, which grew on the rich resources of the area. Education was a high priority for early settlers, and they established one-room schoolhouses and Notre Dame University. The photographs show public places, buildings, and servants, some long gone, others that are still with us today. And of course, there are pictures of the people, the homes they built, and the activities they enjoyed in their northern Indiana home.
