The rebellion of the hanged by B Traven( Book )
32 editions published between 1950 and 1997 in English and German and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Rebellion of the Hanged is the fifth of B. Traven's six legendary Jungle Novels which together form an epic of the birth of the Mexican Revolution. Set in the slave-labor mahogany plantations of tropical Mexico in 1910, at the time of the uprising against the rule of Porfirio Diaz and the beginnings of revolution, Rebellion is a powerful and somber tale of the tortures suffered by downtrodden Indians. But here it culminates in a revolt by the long-oppressed workers against the owners and overseers of the camps, and in a treacherous march through the jungles at the height of the rainy season - a human feat of epic proportions
General from the jungle by B Traven( Book )
65 editions published between 1940 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
General from the Jungle is the sixth and last of B. Traven's legendary Jungle Novels, a fictional epic of the birth of the Mexican Revolution. In this masterpiece on guerrilla warfare, Traven tells the story of Juan Mendez, perhaps the youngest and greatest of the Indian rebel chieftains, who leads an ill-equipped and hungry band against the government forces. With brilliance and cunning, Mendez brutally attacks the federally protected fincas. The book is filled with marvelously drawn characters, yet the true hero is the army itself - illiterate, uneducated, and poor, but resourceful and dangerous. General is the culmination of a great story by a great storyteller
The cotton-pickers by B Traven( Book )
18 editions published between 1956 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The background of The Cotton-Pickers, set in Mexico in the 1920s, is the struggle of the emerging trade unions to end the exploitation of hungry laborers. Gales, a laconic American drifter, turns his hand for anything for a meal and a flea-bitten bunk - he works on a cotton plantation, in an oil field, in a bakery, as a cowboy for a North American ranch owner. But he hates exploitation, so he leaves behind him a trail of rebellion. Underlying this lively and amusing tale of his adventures is a powerful study of social injustice, and most of all a testament to the strength of human courage and dignity - one of Traven's favorite themes
The bridge in the jungle by B Traven( Book )
29 editions published between 1938 and 2006 in English and German and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Regarded by many as B. Traven's finest novel, The Bridge in the Jungle is a tale of a simple, desperately poor people coming together in the face of a death that affects them all. The locale is "huts by the river," a nameless Indian settlement deep in the Mexican bush, too small to appear on any map. A festive gathering that has attracted many Indians from neighboring settlements is about to begin, when death marches silently in. A small boy has disappeared. As the intimation of tragedy spreads among the people gathered in the jungle clearing, they unite, first to find the lost boy and then to console the grieving mother. Traven never allows an iota of sentimentality to enter his story, but the reader finishes The Bridge in the Jungle with renewed faith in the courage and dignity of human beings
Government by B Traven( Book )
17 editions published between 1935 and 1994 in English and German and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Depicting the political corruption that infected even the smallest villages in Mexico, the novel tells the story of Don Gabriel, a minor government functionary who has a virtual license to steal from the Indian village where he is secretary--except that the Indians have nothing to steal. By chance he finds an opportunity in the labor agent business, shanghai-ing luckless Indians into debt slavery so that he can ship them off to work in the great mahogany plantations owned by foreign capital. The novel reaches its climax in a clash of cultures between the simple dignity of the illiterate Indians and the cynicism and corruption of the politicians and petty bureaucrats."--Page 4 of cover
