Description
Information
A classic collection of African American folklore

Nights with Uncle Remus gathers seventy-one of Joel Chandler Harris's most popular stories of the Antebellum South, including the classic trickster tales of Brer rabbit, creation myths, Sea Island legends, chilling ghost stories, and the indispensable 'The Moon in the Mill-Pond.' Told through the distinctive voices of four slave storytellers, these anthropomorphic tales have not only created cultural icons like the 'Tar baby,' but have inspired writers from Mark Twain to William Faulkner, Zora Neale Hurston to Toni Morrison, and helped revolutionize modern children's literature and folktale collecting.

Edited with an Introduction by JOHN T. BICKLEY and R. BRUCE BICKLEY, JR.
