Joel Chandler Harris was a shy teenager who was too young for the draft. He was born poor and illegitimate, but with a gift for humor and dialect. He spent time in the evening with the black spellbinders and gained insight into the folklore which later became the basis of his Uncle Remus animal stories about Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and Brer Bear. His stories won the hearts of the young and adults all over the world.
