17 Stories From Uncle Remus: His Songs and Sayings Audiobook CD Set
Listen to a sample chapter of 17 Stories From Uncle Remus: His Songs and Sayings Audiobook!
Uncle Remus, that genial old storyteller, knows how to spin the delightful tales about the ‘criteers’ that the little 6 year old boy in the book (and many of us adults!) love to listen to. ‘Brer Rabbit and ‘Brer Fox and the others can, at times, remind us of the people all around us. The stories in this volumes tell about personalities, faults, and virtues in a way that is unique to Uncle Remus. As the shadows grow longer outside, draw up a rocking chair next to the little boy, settle back and listen to the wise old man tell these stories. The 17 stories in this volume were specially chosen from Uncle Remus: His Songs and Sayings and include The Wonderful Tar-Baby Story, Miss Cow falls a Victim to Mr. Rabbit; Mr. Fox and the Deceitful Frogs; Mr. Rabbit grossly deceives Mr. Fox and many more. While this is not a book that will pass a current political correctness test, due to its use of labels for black folks which have gone out of polite conversation, Uncle Remus is a largely sympathetic look at post-war plantation life. Uncle Remus himself is a warm, folksy man of good humor and dry wit, the Uncle Remus books are like a moment of history frozen in amber, highlighting the delightful abilities and history of African-American story-tellers, who passed down stories from generation to generation.
