Tractors by Herbert S. Zim and James R. Skelly Illustrated by Lee J. Ames This book describes tractors, their history, their uses, and how they are put together. Tractors have a dozen different names and are equipped to do countless jobs. Gathered here are descriptions of the most important ones, leading off with the familiar farm tractor. With the proper attachment added to it, this tractor can do a wide rante of tasks, such as plow, harrow, plant, and harvest. However, industrial tractors are also vital to our age. They work in mills and mines, airports and freight terminals. Perhaps the best known is the bulldozer, which is the workhorse of all construction.
