"Nights with Uncle Remus" by Joel Chandler Harris is a collection of 71 Afro-American tales, featuring the cunning fox and the more cunning rabbit. "Nights with Uncle Remus" is a storybook dearly loved by children. Besides that, it is an important contribution to the study of Afro-American folklore, 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. In this new edition, which has been prepared especially for children, and illustrated in colors by an artist who knows how to please them as well as their elders, the Introduction has been omitted, but the stories and their charming setting have been left intact.
