Summary This is a book about tractors, places and people. Ian Johnston is a renowned international expert on tractors. Ian begins with his boyhood in Fife and Edinburgh. He tells of venturing to Australia alone at the age of 16. His experiences as a jackaroo, a truck driver, erecting windmills and a tractor driver are full of interest and humour. And Tractors, always tractors. He brings to life the characters he meets. It was tractors that first took him to Japan and green tea. It was tractors and a visit to the Farmliner factory in Romania that introduced Ian to Kalashnikovs. Of course, he did chose.
