Now an industry giant and a legend among American manufacturers, Caterpillar first got its name from Holt Manufacturing Company's remarkable tractor creation of 1905. What followed was the Caterpillar century, an era of engineering revolutions and world-changing earthmovers. Eric Orlemann serves as tour guide through this time of American mechanical know-how and muscle, offering us a rare close-up look at the technology of Caterpillar's most important equipment innovations, then and now. Packed with contemporary photographs, archival images, and information on state-of-the-art equipment design, Caterpillar Century traces the evolution of this icon of industry from its emergence in 1905 to its making of modern day heavy-equipment marvels and development of future design prototypes.
