Synopsis: There's nothing a Caterpillar can't handle. From farming to construction, Caterpillar is known as a leader in the agricultural and construction trades, helping build America's farms, roads, and buildings.
This BIG book presents the complete history of Caterpillar, covering all steam, gas, and diesel farm tractors, logging crawlers, and construction bulldozers and tractors from the 1860s to the present. The text combines with stunning color photographs, historical artwork, advertisements, rare brochures, and collectible memorabilia such as dealer signs and clocks to tell the whole story of this leading heavy machinery maker.
In addition, we've added an entertaining story well known to Cat buffs: The first Alexander Botts story about Earthworm Tractors. Also included is background on Cat's predecessor companies, Holt, Daniel Best, and C.L. Best, as well as a discussion of products from associated companies such as Russell Grader, Letourneau, and Trackson.
