When photographer Paul Mobley set out to capture the soul of America's farming communities, he discovered a culture defined by tradition, integrity and hard work, and comprised of the most authentic and generous individuals he'd ever encountered. Traveling across the country from Tennessee to Montana, Mobley and his camera were welcomed into the homes of more than 100 farming families, who graciously shared their personal histories along with the fruits of their labor. To spend time with them was to turn back the clock — to an era when there were no locks on doors, no urban sprawl, and no virtue more prized than common decency. Children still move across the street and not across the state when they grow up, and parents move back in with their children when they grow old. Story after story, visit after visit, Mobley slowly came to know the independent farmer's spirit both from behind the lens and over the dinner table.

The result is a stunning series of portraits and direct quotes that collectively chronicle the life of the American farmer. Each image offers an unvarnished and intimate look inside the hardships and joys of a quickly disappearing lifestyle — one that once defined our national identity and now struggles just to keep a foothold. And even as encroaching cities threaten their livelihoods, these men and women continue to find sustenance in the same basic human values they were raised with. American Farmer is an inspirational reminder of what it means to live with simplicity and contentment, in a world that is driven by excess. This vivid portfolio is accompanied by anecdotes and memories in the farmer's own words that are both a testament to their enduring hospitality and a moving glimpse into their daily routines and family histories. But what you will read first, and foremost, are their faces. From Bruce Crump, a citrus farmer in Florida; to Patsy Fribley, a stockyard dealer from Montana; to Thurston Wilber, a Maine lobsterman, Mobley's intense and beautiful portraits capture the furrows of fields lining their brows, the crevices of drought creasing the corners of their mouths, and the grains of truth in their squinted eyes.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $14.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Although the American cowboy has long been a favorite subject for novelists, filmmakers and illustrators, too often the picture painted of them bears little relation to reality. Philip Ashton Rollins, who lived in the West on and off between 1892 and 1924, set out to create a more accurate portrait of this enduring icon. Based on what he himself witnessed, this fascinating study discusses what exactly makes a cowboy, as well as cowboy weaponry, clothing, saddles and equipment; the "cowboy character"; and a cowboy's work. In addition, Rollins describes the history of ranching in the United States, the raising of horses and cattle, livestock rustling, and more.

This remarkable book is perhaps the most accurate and detailed description of the real-life American cowboy ever written. Here Rollins describes the beginnings of ranching in America, and how horses and cattle were raised. He details, with flair and expertise, everything about the cowboy and his work — his tools and weapon, his clothes and tack, the specialized skills he perfected, and the life he led while on the range. He explains that there was really no typical American cowboy and definitively separates fact from legend. A wonderful resource for anybody who lives or loves the cowboy life, this book is an incredible record of these men, their lives and their work.

About the author
Philip Ashton Rollins, a graduate of Princeton, traveled extensively in the West and wrote about its people and their work.

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.

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.
