1 JAMES, Terry ANDERSON, Frances In Praise of Oxen. First Edition in dustjacket
Nimbus Publishing, Halifax, 1992, ISBN:1551090244 
JAMES, Terry. In Praise of Oxen. (Halifax, Nova Scotia) : Nimbus Publishing. (1992). First Edition. Pp (3),[iv]-vi,[1]-106. Large 8vo, red cloth, giltlettering to spine. A lovely book with 114 colour photographs by James and text by Frances Anderson and James. "'If you have ever heard the sound of ox-bells, you are likely to remember them forever.' Oxen - powerful, intelligent and versatile animals - have for centuries been molded to conform with human needs: from logging, farming, and hauling freight to performing in exhibitions, parades and ox-pulls. The story of oxen as beasts of burden, however, encompasses much more than mere animal husbandry. It is the story of a unique relationship between the ox owner and his team: a relationship which expresses itself as an entire way of life. Terry James' photographs illuminate this way of life by offering an impressive variety of images that capture the essential qualities of these adapatable animals, and the confidence and pride they instill in their owners. The photographs are richly complemented by tributes from the ox owners themselves, accentuating the oxen culture that has emerged over time. Together, text and images evoke a time and a way of life that is fast disappearing. In Praise of Oxen celebrates the humble oxen and the proud people who own them." - from the dj.
