Working at a plantation in his youth, Joel Chandler Harris found that much of his shyness disappeared in the slave QTLYters, and his background as the illegitimate son of an Irish immigrant helped fuse a close bond with the slaves. The language of his new friends and the African-American animal tales they shared later became the inspiration for Joel’s beloved Uncle Remus stories.
"Not a PC Telling"
Uncle Remus, that genial old storyteller, knows how to spin these wonderful tales about the 'critters' that the little 6-year-old boy (and many of us adults!) love to listen to. Yet the Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox and the others sound a lot like the people all around us. They tell stories about personalities and faults and virtues in a way that is unique to Uncle Remus. As the shadows grow longer outside, draw up a rocking chair next to the little boy, settle back and listen to the wise old man tell the story of when Brer Rabbit gets tangled up with the Tar Baby and almost ends up as rabbit stew.
Glenn Hascall does a marvelous job of narrating Joel Chandler Harris' tale of Brer Fox's attempt to capture Brer Rabbit. The fox is cunning, but the rabbit is cleaver and a bit devious.
Retold by Marion Palmer from the original Uncle Remus stories by Joel Chandler Harris. This book is adapted from the characters and backgrounds created for the Walt Disney motion picture Song of the South and other Walt Disney adaptations of the original Uncle Remus stories. Stories include "Who Was Uncle Remus?"; "De Tar-Baby"; "Brer Terrapin's Tug-of-War"; and many more. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian.
A collection of animal stories, songs, and oral folklore, collected from southern African - Americans. Many of the stories are didactic, much like those of Aesop's Fables and Jean de la Fontaine's stories. Uncle Remus is a kindly old former slave who serves as a storytelling device, passing on the folktales to children gathered around him... A fascinating listening experience! Published as a book in 1881.
