192 pp, 10 3/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, advertisements, articles, reproductions. "This 'scrapbook' is as absorbing as an old family album that carries one back through the decades. Pictures and yarns of the early 1800s wheat-farming era, when harvesting was a matter of hand labor - cutting with scythes - bundling into sheaves - and the women following the crews to cook up husky meals for hungry men. Then came Cyrus McCormick's mechanical reaper. Although many were dubious about the machine, it proved itself highly competent, and the whole picture changed. Harvest-ing would never be the same again. Following the success of the reaper came many other inventions that revolutionized wheat farming and all of agriculture. But wheat farming still required plenty of people-power." Contents: Introduction; Heroic Homesteaders; Prairie Life; Getting the Crop In; Heading and Binding (Heading / Binding / Stacking); Threshing (Sweep Power / Woimen Worked Too); Combined-Harvester. Small bump at top of spine, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, very light wear at corners and at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top of spine and flap-folds, light rubbing with some color loss on spine.
