Book Introduction: THE BEST OF UNCLE REMUS: FOLKTALES OF THE OLD SOUTH features more than 100 short stories told by Uncle Remus, Joel Chandler Harris' fictional Reconstruction-era former slave. Kindly Uncle Remus lives on a plantation, regaling the young with witty tales of Brer Rabbit and other wise animals whose tricks and trouble-making have entertained generations of readers in the United States and throughout the world. • Uncle Remus: His Songs and His Sayings • Nights With Uncle Remus • Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit Joel Chandler Harris (1848-1908) was an American journalist and writer. Born illegitimately to an Irish immigrant, Harris grew up on the margins of Southern society. Self-conscious of his illegitimacy, his Irish ancestry, and his red hair, Harris was an avid reader but struggled in school. He went to work during the Civil War as a printer's devil on a Georgia Plantation, where he listened to stories and animal tales told by the slaves. These later served as the basis for his Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit stories. During Reconstruction, he worked at several Southern newspapers, eventually becoming a journalist at the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, where he remained for nearly twenty-five years. During his time in Atlanta (1876-1908), Harris published several volumes of Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit stories (as well as other works), which quickly became bestsellers.
