About this title:

Synopsis: Ian M. Johnston is a historian, photographer, vintage car collector, and an internationally known expert on tractors. Johnston has lived the history of post-war farming and farm machinery in Australia, and he offers insights into part of Australia's post-World War II history that is rarely recorded or described so humorously. Having worked with the legendary Lanz tractor firm, he eventually formed his own agricultural machinery business, which allowed him the opportunity to travel abroad, visiting various countries, such as Japan and Romania. This delightful memoir offers amusing details of his travels involving tractors.
