Item Description: Oxford University Press, 1999. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In this marvelous collection, David Lemming and Jake Page have gathered together the great myths and Legends of America, ranging from the creation stories of the first inhabitants, to the tall-tales of the Western frontier, to the Legendary outlaws of the 1920s.Here is a thoroughly engaging chronicle, a book unrivaled in its scope, embracing Big Foot and Windingo, Hiawatha and Uncle Sam, Paul Revere and Billy the Kid, the Iroquois Flying Head and Elvis. The editors cast their nets widely. Under myths, for instance, Leeming and Page include "the melting pot", "manifest destiny", and Henry Adams's "dynamo". And under "Heroes and Heroines", they have assembled everyone from Honest Abe LincoLn and George Washington, to Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday. and Martin Luther King. For each myth or hero, the editors include an excerpt -- often the definitive rendering of the story in question -- so that for Moby Dick, we find a passage from Melville's classic, and for Brer Rabbit, the "Tar Baby" tale by Joel ChandLer Harris. And along the way, the editors reveal how waves of immigrants, encountering this strange land for the first time, adapted their religion and folklore to help make sense of a new and astounding place. Thus a central Asian god becomes the Great Spirit of Native American myth, and an Aztec goddess is transformed into Our Lady of Guadaloupe.Ranging from the coyote trickster, to Johnny Appleseed, to John Henry and Stagolee, this wonderful collection il.

Item Description: Creation Books, 2000. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In the Georgia swamplands and plantations, a cast of anthropomorphic animals enacts daily rituals of pursuit, trickery and escape. In this pre-Loony Toons world of sassy, talking beasts, Brer Rabbit is the hero -- duelling both verbally and physically with those who would eat him, and perpetually in the monstrous shadow of the Tar Baby.The casual publication in 1877 of "The Tar Baby" by Joel Chandler Harris, found Harris his literary vocation. In the following years he developed his own plantation mythology in a series of volumes, narrated by "Uncle Remus", telling colloquial tales of the wily hero Brer Rabbit (an obvious precursor of Bugs Bunny) and his clashes with the villain, Brer Fox. Tar Baby is a collection of some of the finest of these often surreal and grotesque stories, in the original African American dialect, and is presented as a classic of American literature for both adult readers and children of all ages.

Item Description: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich Publishers, 1987. Hard cover. Book Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket. Moser, Barry (Illustrated by). (illustrator). Reinforced binding. Sewn binding. Paper over boards. 39 p. Audience: Children/juvenile. Newspaperman Harris published many of these stories originally in Georgia, reporting he had gathered them from storytellers, Southern blacks in the late 1800s. The central character was Uncle Remus, an elderly black plantation slave. He recorded them using the language and stereotypes of his era, perhaps perpetuating those same. This adaptation brings forward the folklore, the humor, the family tales, the defenseless who outsmart the bigger animals, with resourcefulness and courage. Moser's drawings are wonderful. Includes: Fisherman, Tar-Baby, Weasel, Mosquitoes, Courtship. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.0006829

Item Description: Creation Books, London, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Thus. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. In the Georgia swamplands and plantations, a cast of anthropomorphic animals enact daily rituals of pursuit, trickery and escape. In this pre-Looney Toons world of sassy, talking beasts, Brer Rabbit is the hero - duelling both verbally and physically with those who would eat him - and perpetually in the monstrous shadow of the Tar Baby. The casual publication in 1877 of The Tar Baby by Joel Chandler Harris, found Harris his vocation. In the following years he developed his own plantation mythology in a series of volumes, narrated by Uncle Remus, telling colloquial tales of the wily hero Brer Rabbit (an obvious precursor of Bugs Bunny) and his clashes with the villain, Brer Fox. Tar Baby, in it's original African-American dialect, is a collection of some of the finest of these often surreal and grotesque stories and is presented as a classic of American literature for both adult readers and children of all ages. With an original cover illustration by Deryk Thomas. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 041355

Item Description: University of Texas Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 150 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Walt Disney Company offers a vast universe of movies, television shows, theme parks, and merchandise, all carefully crafted to present an image of wholesome family entertainment. Yet Disney also produced one of the most infamous Hollywood films, Song of the South. Using cartoon characters and live actors to retell the stories of Joel Chandler Harris, SotS portrays a kindly black Uncle Remus who tells tales of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and the Tar Baby to adoring white children. Audiences and critics alike found its depiction of African Americans condescending and outdated when the film opened in 1946, but it grew in popularity-and controversy-with subsequent releases. Although Disney has withheld the film from American audiences since the late 1980s, SotS has an enthusiastic fan following, and pieces of the film-such as the Oscar-winning Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah -remain throughout Disney s media universe. Disney s Most Notorious Film examines the racial and convergence histories of Song of the South to offer new insights into how audiences and Disney have negotiated the film s controversies over the last seven decades. Jason Sperb skillfully traces the film s reception history, showing how audience perceptions of SotS have reflected debates over race in the larger society. He also explores why and how Disney, while embargoing the film as a whole, has repurposed and repackaged elements of SotS so extensively that they linger throughout American culture, serving as everything from cultural metaphors to consumer products.
