Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby by Joel Chandler Harris

The original tale of Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby appeared in the Cherokee Advocate in 1845, but a number of similar Cherokee and African Slave stories involving a rabbit trickster appeared around the same time.

In this Uncle Remus story, which is filled with fairly heavy dialect, the author tells us how Brer Rabbit manages to let his temper get him into trouble---very sticky trouble indeed.

About 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.

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!
