Note that CD is for MP3 compatible devices.Uncle Remus was a fictionalized, friendly old black man who told plantation tales to an admiring young boy on a plantation in middle Georgia during the 1880’s. But Uncle Remus still lives as the most famous personality of all Georgia literature. As literature, these stories are a unique record of Afro-American animal folklore. As social history, the tales contain a melancholy undercurrent about the changing postwar South and a nostalgia for gentle values of the past. But the fact that the tales entertain is, after all, the only justification they have ever needed. Sixty-four favorite stories are printed here with some of the original illustrations.
