The Big Book of Ford Tractors covers Ford tractor development from Henry Ford's early days to the merger with New Holland (which was the end for Ford-branded tractors). The book is written in an encyclopedic format, with narrative descriptions of each model covered.

The early history of Henry Ford, and his quest to built an affordable tractor opens the book. Considerable attention is paid to the original Fordson tractors. After an introduction to Harry Ferguson, there are over 30 pages dedicated to the N-series (9N, 2N, 8N, and NAA). Subsequent models get from a page to a few paragraphs each, all accompanied by photos.

This book is an excellent overview of Ford tractor models, and has great information about the Fordsons and N-series in particular. Among the latter models, it does a good job of explaining the often-confusing Ford model codes used in the 1960s when the same name was used multiple times.
