A collection of antebellum folklore from Georgia. Uncle Remus is primarily a collection of tales, songs, and proverbs that Joel Chandler Harris recorded from the oral tradition of former slaves. Since many slaves could not read or write, oral folklore played an essential role in their daily lives. Uncle Remus became the first major publication to record slave tales. The most well known of these tales is Brer Rabbit, but also includes: legends, humorous anecdotes, outrageous yarns, animal stories, other tales.
