An American journalist, fiction writer, and folklorist best known for his collection of Uncle Remus stories. Contents Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit Uncle Remus, His Songs and His Sayings Nights With Uncle Remus Stories Of Georgia On the Plantation Free Joe and Other Georgian Sketches The Bishop and the Boogerman A Little Union Scout Little Mr. Thimblefinger and His Queer Country Mingo, and Other Sketches in Black and White Gabriel Tolliver: A Story of Reconstruction Free Joe and Other Georgian Sketches- The charm of Joel Chandler Harris' Georgian sketches has long been recognized as of a peculiarly rare kind. In his hands the art of telling a short story has been developed well-nigh to perfection. Each of his tales has certain qualities that, taken together, stamp it as the work of a master--a just and artistic balancing of parts, a felicitous grouping of incidents, strong character studies, bold in outline and finished with a wealth of suggestive detail; a tinge of humor which ever and anon passes the line and acquires the deep hue of pathos; and, finally, a touch of graceful fancy and tender sentiment. The skill and exquisite literary taste with which Mr Harris weaves these delicate threads into the texture of his tales are known of all men; and in none of his work is he seen to better advantage than in this collection of his more recent stories. Nights With Uncle Remus- Nights With Uncle Remus is a story-book dearly loved by children. Besides that, it is an important contribution to the study of Afro-American folk-lore, and through many years of popularity it has carried a long and learned Introduction, of great interest to students but rather forbidding in aspect to youthful readers. Mingo And Other Sketches in Black and White Four sketches of Southern life, and in them are power of description, a mingling of pathos and wit, and vigor of style.
