Brer Rabbit, Eatonton, Georgia

Joel Chandler Harris (December 9, 1845 – July 3, 1908) was born in Eatonton, Georgia.  He is the author of the Uncle Remus stories and the creator of Brer Rabbit. It is another of those Americana sites that I stumbled across traveling the back roads of Georgia.

I’m sorry, but that is a freaky statue.  I’m sure many a child has had nightmares after stopping here…..
