The valley of the moon by Jack London( Book )

19 editions published between 1926 and 1975 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A road novel fifty years before Kerouac, The Valley of the Moon traces the odyssey of Billy and Saxon Roberts from the labor strife in Oakland at the turn of the century through central and northern California in search of beautiful land they can farm independently - a journey that echoes Jack London's own escape from urban poverty. As he lost hope in the prospects of the socialist party and organized labor, London began researching a scientific and environmentally sound approach to agriculture. In his novel it is Saxon, London's most fully realized heroine, who embodies these concerns. The Valley of the Moon is London's paean to his wife Charmian and to the pastoral life and his ranch in Glen Ellen, the Valley of the Moon. A new foreword by Kevin Starr comments on the themes of the novel and its interest for contemporary readers."--Jacket

12 editions published between 1924 and 2012 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack London's dystopian vision of the future. Sixty years after Great Red Death, a scarlet plague, wipes out mankind, a handful of survivors have established their own civilization. In this savage world, art, science, and learning have all been lost, and the young descendants know nothing of the world that was. An old man is the only one who can convey the wonders of that bygone era, and the horrors of the plague that brought about its end. What future lies in store for the remnants of mankind can only be surmised, and the deadly virus, which kills in a matter of minutes, remains a terrifying prophecy of the perils of globalization and the damage humans wreak on their environment. -- Publisher description
