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, 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: 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: Oxford University Press, 1999. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! 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: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Brer Rabbit is the main character of the Uncle Remus stories, a likable character prone to tricks and trouble-making who is often opposed by Br er Fox and Br er Bear. In one tale, Br er Fox constructs a lump of tar and puts clothing on it. When Br er Rabbit comes along he addresses the tar baby amiably, but receives no response. Br er Rabbit becomes offended by what he perceives as Tar Baby s lack of manners, punches it, and becomes stuck. Br er Rabbit is a trickster who succeeds by his wits rather than by brawn, provoking authority figures and bending social mores as he sees fit. The stories have inspired at least three feature films. The first and best known is Walt Disney s Song of the South, released in 1946. The film was a combination of live action and animation. Ralph Bakshi s 1975 film Coonskin is a satire of the Disney film that adapts the Uncle Remus stories to a contemporary Harlem setting. The Adventures of Brer Rabbit is a 2006 direct-to video production which has hip-hop influences. An Uncle Remus and His Tales of Br er Rabbit newspaper strip ran from October 14, 1945, through December 31, 1972. All ten Uncle Remus Brer Rabbit adventures are collected here: BRER RABBIT S FROLIC BROTHER BEAR S BIG HOUSE BRER RABBIT TREATS THE CREETURS TO A RACE BRER RABBIT S FLYING TRIP BRER RABBIT AND THE GOLD MINE BRER RABBIT GETS BRER FOX A HOSS BRER RABBIT FINDS THE MOON IN THE MILL POND HOW MR. LION LOST HIS WOOL HOW BRER RABBIT GOT A HOUSE BRER RABBIT AND THE PARTRIDGE NEST. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781499588699
