It really is too bad this book went out of print. It is one of the best books on wagons and other horse drawn vehicles. It is not so much on how to build but it offers a nice range of wagons to help with choosing what you may want to build or to help identify what a pile of rust metal could have been. There is a wide variety of vehicles from carts, cutters and sleighs to stage coaches and heavy wagons.
