This beautifully illustrated children's book recreates the mood of 19th-century rural New England. It begins in October when a farmer and his family fill it up their ox cart with everything they made or grew all year long that was left over: a bag of wool, a shaw and mittens, candles, linen, a broom, potatoes, apples, maple sugar, etc. He walked the ox and cart until he reached a market, where he sold everything, including his cart and ox. Then the man bought things that his family needed, such as an iron kettle, embroidery needle, knife for wood carving, and wintergreen peppermint candies. The story continues through the winter and spring as the family makes and grows the same items that they will again sell to buy things that they need. Winner of The Caldecott Medal.

Winner of the Caldecott Medal Thus begins a lyrical journey through the days and weeks, the months, and the changing seasons in the life of one New Englander and his family. The oxcart man packs his goods - the wool from his sheep, the shawl his wife made, the mittens his daughter knitted, and the linen they wove. He packs the birch brooms his son carved, and even a bag of goose feathers from the barnyard geese. He travels over hills, through valleys, by streams, past farms and villages. At Portsmouth Market he sells his goods, one by one - even his beloved ox. Then, with his pockets full of coins, he wanders through the market, buying provisions for his family, and returns to his home. And the cycle begins again. "Like a pastoral symphony translated into picture book format, the stunning combination of text and illustrations recreates the mood of 19-century rural New England."—The Horn Book
