Uncle Remus Favorites book.Spring is here and with the month of May comes the season for weddings!  The ancient Cherokee told a funny story about the devious rabbit and the lazy possum who decide to team up to find wives.

In most of the stories involving the rabbit, the Cherokee portrayed them as clever, devious, and the penultimate trickster.  The Cherokee rabbit fables are so similar to the “Uncle Remus” and “Brer Rabbit” fables, that I think they must be connected.  [refer to my article: Tar Baby vs Tar Wolf]

This week I would like to offer two children’s stories for your amusement.  The first story was recorded by James Mooney who lived with the Cherokee in the late 1800’s and collected many of the Cherokee children’s stories from the elders and old medicine men.  This story is named “The Rabbit and the Tar Wolf.”
