From the Inside Flap

Humans, since the beginning of civilization, have had the desire to reshape the earth. While some of the most amazing projects, big and small, were accomplished by manpower, there is always a quest for more. The first major development in earthmoving machines occurred in the 1800s. Railway construction led to the development of the steam powered shovel, and soon machines like the big steam wheeled tractors of the late nineteenth century, and crawler tractors were being put to use. Slowly but surely, we saw advancements in earthmoving equipment that have changed the way we live today. The Earthmover Encyclopedia gives the interesting history of the development of these machines, along with all the dirt on every piece of earthmoving machinery made.
