Tractor in the Haystack

Thu Aug 04, 2011 4:46 pm

Didn't know where to put this, so Mods can relocate at will.

My daughter found a book by Scott Garvey at the library and checked it out for me. It's entitled, The Tractor in the Haystack: Great Stories of Tractor Archaeology.

Anybody else read this? Believe the author might be from Canada (can't remember), but the stories are great! Short stories of all different kinds of tractors found/saved by people who love ol' iron and the circumstances surrounding their rescue.

Here's a link to Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Tractor-Haystack- ... 312&sr=8-1

Highly recommended.

Is it anything like "Cubs in the Poisen Ivy"? :lol: Thanks for the info, I might have to find that one (the haystack book) sometime and check it out.
