Genre: Transportation

The philosophical musings of author, television personality, and tractor nut Roger Welsch -- the 21st century's answer to Will Rogers -- have inflamed the minds of a generation (not to mention inflaming other delicate tissues). Finally, three of his most important books about the correlation between farm equipment and relationships are combined in one convenient volume, The Tractor Trilogy. Even with some of Roger's new stuff added in, this tiny package still fits into the front pouch of most overalls! Old Tractors and the Men Who Love Them seduces readers into joining the cult of Allis-Chalmers. Learn how to acquire rusty tractors while dodging an angry spouse, why the best solution to any problem begins in the local tavern, and why you should never eat peanuts in the shop. Busted Tractors and Rusty Knuckles chronicles the revival of The Woodpecker, a scrap-yard orphaned Allis-Chalmers WC. Meet local tractor experts who keep Roger on the right track, learn techniques such as goo removal and fender wrestling, and get some good advice from fellow tractor fanatics. Love, Sex, and Tractors cracks the nut that has confounded mankind since the invention of the wheel: Can men, women, and tractors coexist in peace? And where does a case of Old Milwaukee fit in the equation? In perhaps his greatest contribution to society, Roger unveils the secret to male survival: The Male Generic Apology. Book jacket.
