“...a fascinating book about the rise of the great grain elevators.” ― Canada’s History
“Grain Dust Dreams is a miniaturist masterpiece. David Tarbet was raised in a Canadian grain shipping hub, and takes us on a fond and fascinating tour of the history, the culture, and the technology of North American grain elevators. Beautifully written and rigorously researched, Grain Dust Dreams is an unusually charming addition to industrial history.” ― Charles R. Morris, author of The Dawn of Innovation: The First American Industrial Revolution
“Drawing on personal experience, David Tarbet writes with authority. This is an important subject presented in a manner that’s accessible to all.” ― Thorold Tronrud, Director, Thunder Bay Historical Museum
“Grain Dust Dreams is an intimate and personal account of the impact of the grain industry on two North American communities. The reader will be transported into the inner workings of a grain elevator, and uncover the significance the elevators had on the communities in which they reside. Readers will also enjoy the personal accounts from workers in these engineering marvels along with the hazards encountered by their operators. Tarbet also explores the perplexing question many communities face: how to repurpose these majestic structures so that they last for posterity.” ― Tim Bohen, author of Against the Grain: The History of Buffalo’s First Ward
