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.
