Meet the Author

Joel Chandler Harris, (1845-1908) started collecting materials for a series of books featuring the character of Brer Rabbit in the 1870’s. Mr. Harris had become familiar with many of the stories he wrote down during the time he worked as a printer’s devil for a newspaper run by Joseph Turnwold, who also owned a plantation using slave labor. In later years, he worked for other newspapers and magazines, including The Saturday Evening Post.

A number of other well-known authors such as Mark Twain and A. A. Milne have credited Harris with influencing their own writing careers.

    Hmmmm, kinda 'spensiv fo only one story.

    A dollar can go a long way on my nook, not with this purchase though. There is so much more to this story . ? ?where's the briar patch? Brer Rabbit gets the short end of the stick here, and if you arent familiar with the story, you're left wondering why. Two thumbs down!
