Harvesting Heritage: 150 Years of the American Farm, a special collector's edition featuring more than 35 great essays from Sam Moore, author of Let's Talk Rusty Iron as featured in Farm Collector!

As a student of the past, Moore learned his lessons well. Paying careful attention to instructions from his elders, he not only learned the old ways but gained a full appreciation for them. Today, he can tell you not only how farms were once operated, but why farmers did things the way they did.

In his regular columns, Moore brings long-forgotten characters to life: neighbors, harvest crews, local mechanics and farm wives of decades past make encore appearances, sharing their wisdom and a laugh or two. Early farm practices and the routines of everyday life of half a century ago are recounted in a fresh new way, flavored both with nostalgia and a healthy dose of reality. Sometimes the old ways were the best ways; other times, not so much.

Deeply researched and beautifully written, Moore's essays recapture a time now irretrievably lost - but easily glimpsed through the pages of this exciting new edition.

Using lard in cooking dates at least as far back as the 1300s. It is prized by pastry chefs today, and it is an excellent cooking fat because it burns at a very high temperature and tends not to smoke as heavily as many other fats and oils do. Rediscovered along with other healthful animal fats in the 1990s, lard is once again embraced by chefs and enlightened health-care professionals and dietitians.

Lard: The Lost Art of Cooking with Your Grandmother's Secret Ingredient offers you the opportunity to cook like your grandmother, while incorporating good animal fat into your diet once again. Lard is the key to the wonders that came from Grandma's kitchen, and with lard, you can turn out stellar Beef Wellington, Bierocks, or crispy Southern Fried Chicken. Serving your family the 150 treats you enjoyed in your younger days when you visited your grandparents' farm is as easy as flipping a page in this great cookbook. Try your hand at creating fluffy Grandma's Homemade Biscuits, tasty Spanish Corn Bread, delectable Fried Okra, sweet Chocolate Kraut Cake, a Perfect Pastry piecrust for a delicious Butterscotch Peach Pie, or Rhubarb Dumplings.

You will never regret adding Lard: The Lost Art of Cooking with Your Grandmother's Secret Ingredient to your cookbook collection. Don't be afraid to bring a little lard back to the table; your taste buds will be glad you did.

Beautiful New Paperback with over 150 illustrations tells the story of how grain storage began and elevators were invented. Includes sections on a variety materials used in the mid-west from the 1800s to today with many historic photos and 86 full color examples of these wonderful and fascinating buildings that are integral to our farm heritage.

About the author
Linda Laird was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. She was always fascinated with the shapes of the grain elevators that define the horizon in that flat place. She became a historic preservation consultant and community planner, moved back to Kansas and married a John Deere loving, ex-farmboy from rural Reno County.

In 1992 the Kansas state legislature revised the tax code to include taxing the historic wooden elevators used primarily for storage or remaining empty. Many of the oldest wood frame elevators have been torn down or burned since then to avoid taxes. Laird and her husband, Larry Haney, were determined to at least photographically document each elevator in Kansas before the destruction was complete. They were encouraged by The James Marsden Fitch Charitable Trust, a New York foundation that provides mid-career grants to historic preservation projects. The grant allowed them to travel through the mid-west researching and photographing elevators in a multi-state area. This book is a product of that grant.

The original goal of photographing all of the elevators in Kansas was achieved in 2003 when over 1200 elevators had been photographed and documented in a searchable index. It is now possible for the first time to write a history of grain elevators in the state.

Laird's next book will focus on the historic significance of the documented elevators with attention to the various architectural styles and materials used in the continuous development of Kansas elevators.

Beautiful Tractors presents a fabulous variety of the world's most magnificent agricultural machines, each primed, polished and gleaming in all its robust glory. Stylishly lit against a studio backdrop, these superb photographs of vintage and modern masterpieces make for an impressive lineup of engineering prowess. Each photograph is accompanied by a directory, offering information on the machine's history, production, distribution, use and, of course, size. From the elegant early Titan (1915, and oddly reminiscent of Stephenson's Rocket) to the classic "big red tractor" looks of the prosaically named Allis-Chalmers "Model U" (1930), there's plenty here to stir the senses, whether you're a bona fide petrol head or merely nostalgic for a simpler world in which a straightforward piece of farm machinery could also be a feast for the eye.
