Ox-Cart Man is a simple and rhythmic story of a man who fills his ox-cart with all the goods his family has produced over the last year and takes them to market. After selling everything, including his cart and his ox, he buys a few items and walks home. The book follows the year's cycle of work, through the seasons. Through hard work and cooperation, the family, as a unit, provides for itself.
