A Dollar A Minute

Told by Pam Holcomb

Listen to the story

It was a privilege to be chosen as one of the Showcase Performers for the 2012 National Storytelling Network Conference. It was an indeed an honor, however humbling, to get to tell a story to the many outstanding storytellers in attendance. I am grateful for this experience and the exposure that it brings to my storytelling.

The story I chose was “A Dollar A Minute” a delightful story about Brer Rabbit. I am an appreciator of American folklore. Particularly, I have always loved the Uncle Remus stories preserved by Joel Chandler Harris and all the charm and appeal of the stories that for generations have entertained children. However, It is shocking to me to find that so many of the children of today have never even heard of Brer Rabbit, Brer Bear, Brer Fox the other memorable characters of these tales. Because of this, I have made it my quest to help re-introduce these remarkable tales to listeners of today. Children of all ages are caught up in the adventures and shenanigans of these delightful characters as I relate them to their listening ears.
