The bridge in the jungle by B Traven( Book )

196 editions published between 1929 and 2006 in 12 languages and held by 1,362 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

The cotton-pickers by B Traven( Book )

163 editions published between 1926 and 1995 in 13 languages and held by 1,274 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

General from the jungle by B Traven( Book )

83 editions published between 1940 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 923 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
