Walt Disney's animated/live action film, Song of the South, was released in 1946 and introduced an entire generation to Joel Chandler Harris' adaptations of classic Southern African-American folklore. Walt Disney's Uncle Remus Stories, a Giant Golden Book, was published the following year and contains thirteen of Harris' stories, retold by Marion Palmer (pseudonym of Helen Marion Palmer, Dr. Seuss' wife) and illustrated by Al Dempster and Bill Justice from Disney originals. Written in Black dialect (and I'm not getting into the ongoing controversy regarding the racist content of Harris' or Disney's versions), these include such familiar tales as "De Tar Baby," "Brer Rabbit's Laughin' Place," and "De Wuller-de-Wust" as well as many others. A later printing (K) in About Fine condition.
