Looking over the vast open plains of eastern Colorado, western Kansas and southwestern Nebraska, where one can travel miles without seeing a town or even a house, it is hard to imagine the crowded landscape of the last decades of the 19th century. In those days farmers, speculators, and town builders flooded the region, believing that rain would follow the plow and that the "Rainbelt" would become their agricultural Eden. It took a mere decade for drought and economic turmoil to drive these dreaming thousands from the land, turning farmland back to rangeland and reducing settlements to ghost towns.

David J. Wishart's The Last Days of the Rainbelt is the sobering tale of the rapid rise and decline of the settlement of the western Great Plains. History finds its voice in interviews with elderly residents of the region by Civil Works Administration employees in 1933 and 1934. Evidence similarly emerges from land records, climate reports, census records and diaries, as Wishart deftly tracks the expansion of westward settlement across the central plains and into the Rainbelt. Through an examination of migration patterns, land laws, town-building, and agricultural practices, Wishart re-creates the often-difficult life of settlers in a semiarid region who undertook the daunting task of adapting to a new environment. His book brings this era of American settlement and failure on the western Great Plains fully into the scope of historical memory.

The Fordson Major tractor was produced in large numbers at Ford's Dagenham factory in the United Kingdom from 1951 until 1964, and was exported across the world, including to the United States (where it was called the Ford 5000 diesel). Produced with gas, diesel and kerosene-burning engines, the E1A was the subject of continuous development during its life and was a huge success. Many examples of the E1A can still be found at work on farms today, 50 years after the first models entered production. This extensively illustrated book provides a unique insight into this classic tractor.

A price guide is only as helpful as its prices are current. With this in mind, the fourth edition of Herbert Kean's A Price Guide to Antique Tools takes its prices from the latest live and Internet auctions as well as private sales. Like previous editions, the guide includes more than 12,000 prices (individual and chart combinations) that represent extraordinary tools, as well as those found in flea markets.

There is an explanation for each tool group that allows the reader to judge the condition of a tool (the most critical of all factors when determining price). A chapter on American wooden planes covers more than 400 makers, each graded with a single value number … a system that is at the same time simple and comprehensive.

To help even more, almost every tool is illustrated with a photograph or line drawing. The section on Internet prices explains the mechanisms of electronic auctions and gives tips for successful bidding. If you have ever wished that you could consult with an expert before investing in a tool, this is the book for you. It puts at your fingertips the knowledge and expertise of noted tool collector and dealer Herb Kean, both in determining current prices and in evaluating condition.

This guide is filled with great stories and pictures of finds, rescues and rebuilds of collector tractors, engines, steamers and more.

Harvesting Heritage
As a student of the past, Sam Moore learned his lessons well. Paying careful attention to instructions from his elders, he not only learned the old ways but gained a full appreciation for them. Deeply researched and beautifully written, Moore's essays recapture a time irretrievably lost - but easily glimpsed through the pages of this exciting edition.
