After the first book appeared in 1880, Joel Chandler Harris was deluged with letters from readers all over the country asking for more stories of Brer Rabbit and his friends--so for the remaining years of his life he collected and wrote them. Richard Chase, noted folklorist and author of Jack Tales and Grandfather Tales, compiled and edited the volume after Harris s death, and his occasional footnotes and word definitions contribute to our understanding of the dialect. Chase s belief in the importance of folktales and Harris s work is summed up in his foreword: "These tales grew up in the soil of our nation. They came from the soul of a people. They endure."Review:
On the Plantation is an interesting and eloquent story depicting a small but significant segment of American life in earlier years. It has succeeded in surviving the ravages of time and consequently has earned the right to be included in the library and memorable southern novels.(Erskine Caldwell)
Harris pulls out all the stops, which will intrigue all readers today as it did over eighty years ago.(Georgia Librarian)
