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.

Large format heavy book: Additional shipping fee may be requested. From the Introduction: Welcome to the Old Plantation, a place where rabbits and turtles and foxes play tricks on one another, and all of them somehow get caught up in the joyous laughter and music of life. Told and retold for hundreds of years, the folktales were collected in 1880 by American newspaperman Joel Chandler Harris, who published them in Uncle Remus: His Songs and Sayings. The seven tales in this young reader's version were retold from Harris's original book of stories. The language in the retelling has been modernized, but care has been taken to retain the humor, the music, and the truth of these wonderful stories. For these stories are not just about rabbits and foxes. These are stories about all of us. Contents: 1 Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit, Brer Bear and the Peanut Patch; 2 Brer Rabbit Goes Fishing for Suckers; 3 Dead Foxes Tell No Tales; 4 The Great Race; 5 Why Mr. Possum Loves Peace; 6 Brer Fox Goes Hunting; 7 Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit, and the Tar-Baby.

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. 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. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 041355

Item Description: Schocken Books Inc, New York, 1965. Trade paperback. Frost, A. B. (illustrator). First Shocken Paperback Edition. Introduction by Stella Brewer Brookes. From Wikipedia: "Joel Chandler Harris (December 9, 1848 July 3, 1908) was an American journalist, fiction writer, and folklorist best known for his collection of Uncle Remus stories. Harris was born in Eatonton, Georgia, where he served as an apprentice on a plantation during his teenage years. He spent the majority of his adult life in Atlanta working as an associate editor at the Atlanta Constitution. Harris led two professional lives: as the editor and journalist known as Joe Harris, he supported a vision of the New South with the editor Henry W. Grady (1880-1889), stressing regional and racial reconciliation after the Reconstruction era. As Joel Chandler Harris, fiction writer and folklorist, he wrote many 'Brer Rabbit' stories from the African-American oral tradition and helped to revolutionize literature in the process.Not long after taking the newspaper job, Harris began writing the Uncle Remus stories as a serial to "preserve in permanent shape those curious mementoes of a period that will no doubt be sadly misrepresented by historians of the future."[9] The tales were reprinted across the United States, and Harris was approached by publisher D. Appleton and Company to compile them for a book. Uncle Remus: His Songs and His Sayings was published near the end of 1880. Hundreds of newspapers reviewed the best-seller, and Harris received national attention. Of the press and attention Walter Hines Page noted, "Joe Harris does not appreciate Joel Chandler Harris." Royalties from the book were modest, but allowed Harris to rent a six-room house in West End, an unincorporated village on the outskirts of Atlanta, to accommodate his growing family. Two years later Harris bought the house and hired the architect George Humphries to transform the farmhouse into a Queen Anne Victorian in the Eastlake style. The home, soon thereafter called The Wren's Nest, was where Harris spent most of his time. Harris preferred to write at the Wren's Nest. He published prodigiously throughout the 1880s and 1890s, trying his hand at novels, children's literature, and a translation of French folklore. Yet he rarely strayed from home and work during this time. He chose to stay close to his family and his gardening. Harris and his wife Essie had seven more children in Atlanta, with a total of six (out of nine) surviving past childhood. By the late 1890s, Harris was tired of the newspaper grind and suffered from health problems, likely stemming from alcoholism. At the same time, he grew more comfortable with his creative persona. Harris retired from the Constitution in 1900. He continued experimenting with novels and wrote articles for outlets such as The Saturday Evening Post. Still, he remained close to home, refusing to travel to accept honorary degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and Emory College. In 1905 Harris was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Harris traveled to accept an invitation to the White House by President Theodore Roosevelt. Two years earlier, Roosevelt had said, "Presidents may come and presidents may go, but Uncle Remus stays put. Georgia has done a great many things for the Union, but she has never done more than when she gave Mr. Joel Chandler Harris to American literature." On July 3, 1908, Joel Chandler Harris died of acute nephritis and complications from cirrhosis of the liver. In his obituary, the New York Times Book Review echoed Roosevelt's sentiment, stating: Uncle Remus cannot die. Joel Chandler Harris has departed this life at the age of 60 [.] but his best creation, [Uncle Remus] with his fund of folk-lore, will live in literature." Also from Wikipedia: "Arthur Burdett Frost (January 17, 1851-June 22, 1928), was an early American illustrator, graphic artist and comics writer. He was also well known as a painter. Frost's work is well known for its dynamic representation of motion and sequence. Frost is considered one of the great illustrators. Good. CO. Bookseller Inventory # 67315

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: University of Texas Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
