When Harris recorded the many Brer Rabbit stories from the African-American oral tradition, little did he know that it would revolutionize children’s literature. As an adult, Harris committed to healing post-Civil War America, stressing regional and racial reconciliation during and after the Reconstruction era.

Not a PC Telling
I grew up reading and listening to my mother reading Uncle Remus. It was a pleasure to hear the stories again. BUT... I was surprised to learn how my ear has been trained to the use of the "N" word and that it surprised me. I would suggest that a parent listen to the stories before letting their child hear them ... then explain that some racial words are no longer used although they still appear in older literature. In no way do I suggest that these tales be "cleaned up."
Enjoy the old stories as I did.

Would you try another book from Joel Chandler Harris and/or Robin Field?
This is neither the original Uncle Remus nor the Joel Chandler version. I am not sure what version it is, but it has some very different tellings of the Uncle Remus stories.
