Pioneer Plowmaker
A Story about John Deere

David R. Collins

The moist soil of the Midwest stopped any plow used by sticking to the blade. The farmers thought a plow that could clean itself just couldn't be made. John Deere, the young blacksmith, had not let impossibility and disaster stop him before, and he wasn't about to now.


Deere built a self-scouring plow, and with this small start, he founded the famous farm implement company-Deere & Company. This lively and accurate text presents this hardworking, idealistic man whose steel plow opened up some of the world's richest farmland. A story sure to inspire any reader. Grades 3-Adult
