A grand celebration of American farmers and the contribution made to their lives.
The Horn Book Magazine
The crisp black-line drawings offer precision and smoothness, making the volume as strong as the people and the machine itself. This is a rare book depicting everyday life on an American family farm of an era long vanished, and for that reason it should be cherished.
This is a world we have lost, and that many of us sharply regret. Still the real glory of this album lies in Weitzman’s drawings–they resemble steel engravings–which celebrate those early machine dreams.
