Back in the 1830s, who was a young blacksmith from Vermont, about to make his mark on American history? John Deere, that's who!

Who moved to Illinois, where farmers were struggling to plow through the thick, rich soil they called gumbo? Who tinkered and tweaked and tested until he invented a steel plow that sliced into the prairie easy as you please?

Beautiful illustrations-including spectacular landscapes-reflect the time period and bring John Deere's remarkable story to life.
