Sunday, August 20, 2017 - 2:00pm

 

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? Long before the first tractor, who changed farming forever?

John Deere, that's who!

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

Tracy Nelson Maurer is the author of over a hundred books, including John Deere, That's Who! and many other nonfiction books for children. She lives near Minneapolis with her family, and loves to interact with readers on her frequent school and library visits.
