Love the reflection of the fire on faces and clothes of workers and the contact of blacksmith with his family. It proves that it doesn't rely on heart warming draing or coloring style to be heart warming. It relies on sole acting skill of the characters.

This is from a book? Where can I read it? I'm really interested because I actually share a birthday with the man himself.

The work will be in a book somewhere by now but I have no idea where you would find it. Amazon, probably. It's published by Coughlan Companies, Inc. or Capstone. When I worked on it it was called 'John Deere's Powerful Idea' and 'The Perfect Plow'. It's by Terry Collins.

Thank you for taking the time to reply! I'll definitely have to look into it further, because I'm actually really interested in reading about how Deere & Co. came to exist, since there isn't a whole lot of information about either John Deere or his plows out there.

Bloody tell me about it. The amount of time I spent researching the bugger. I found a great website. I can't remember what it was off hand.

Yeah, it's almost astonishing how one of the most influential people in agriculture (he invented the first self-scouring plough, which opened up new lands that were previously un-farmable) has very little information related to him on the internet.
