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 to drive there through what was then Yugoslavia and Bulgaria at a time when such visits from Westerners were regarded with great suspicion. His passion for tractors extends to finding and restoring old and rare tractors. Ian has lived the history of post war farming and farm machinery in Australia. Sit back and enjoy his travels with tractors and gain an insight into a part of Australia’s history not often seen. Ian tells of his life with humour and passion and tractors.

Ron Fitch was born in 1910 into a railway family. He began his career as a 16-year-old engineering cadet and completed it, 46 years later, having worked at various times for two state railways and the Commonwealth, as Commissioner of South Australian Railways. In this book Fitch gives a vivid account not only of his career but of the camaraderie of the greater railway community. This is a book for all train enthusiasts, celebrating the men, the machinery, the toil and the technology, that opened up a vast and sparsely populated continent.
