This book is a great read for any garden tractor enthusiast. Many of you have probably heard of it, or maybe have read it (straight from the horse's mouth). It is the story of Wheel Horse garden tractors but it is much more than that. This book tells a story of not only garden tractors but of history, and a brilliant self taught engineer. Cecil E.

I got the book myself and it's a fascinating read about the history and development of the Ŵheel Horse garden tractors.

Can a person find it online to download anywhere?  Or do you have to buy the book?           :watch_over_fence:
