About the Book

"Mingo" was written by Joel Chandler Harris, an American author well known for his Uncle Remus series. With an eye-catching new cover and finely typeset material, this updated edition of "Mingo" is both up-to-date and intelligible. Readers are compelled to keep reading because the title character is so self-indulgent. Some stories are brutal and weird, whereas others creep up on you and draw you in slowly. Within this work, Harris tells a story about the complicated issues of race and human connections in the United States' South during the latter part of the nineteenth century. The main characters of the story are Mingo, one of the young African American man, and other one John, a white farmer. Mingo has a special connection with John because he grew up on his property. Despite the pervasive racial tensions of the time, John and Mingo maintain a genuine and close friendship. As the novel progresses, though, Mingo finds himself in a circumstance that puts their friendship to the test. He is suspected and charged with stealing.

About Author

Joel Chandler Harris

Joel Chandler Harris (December 9, 1848 – July 3, 1908) was an American journalist, fiction writer, and folklorist best known for his Uncle Remus stories collection. Harris was born in Eatonton, Georgia, where he worked as an apprentice on a plantation during his adolescence, and spent the majority of his professional life in Atlanta as an associate editor at The Atlanta Constitution. Harris had two professional lives: as Joe Harris, an editor and journalist, he supported a vision of the New South with the editor Henry W. Grady (1880-1889), which emphasized regional and racial reconciliation after Reconstruction; as Joel Chandler Harris, a fiction writer and folklorist, he wrote many 'Brer Rabbit' stories from African-American oral tradition. Joel Chandler Harris was born in 1848 in Eatonton, Georgia, to Irish immigrant Mary Ann Harris. His father, whose name has not been revealed, abandoned Mary Ann shortly after Harris was born. The boy was called Joel after his mother's attending physician, Dr. Joel Branham, who had never married. Chandler was his mother's uncle's name. Harris was always self-conscious about his illegitimate birth.
