Bridge in the Jungle by B. Traven

Book Description

The locale is "huts by the river," a nameless Indian settlement deep in the Mexican bush, too small to appear on any map. Just as a party that has attracted many Indians from neighboring settlements is about to begin, 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. The Bridge in the Jungle, regarded by many as B. Traven's finest novel, is a tale of how a simple, desperately poor people come together in the face of death. Traven never allows an iota of sentimentality to enter his story, but the reader finishes the book with renewed faith in the courage and dignity of human beings. "B. Traven is coming to be recognized as one of the narrative masters of the twentieth century."-New York Times Book Review. "Great storytellers often arise like Judaic just men to exemplify and rehearse the truth for their generation. The elusive B. Traven was such a man."-Book World.

Books By Author B. Traven

Trozas by B. Traven Trozas, Paperback (August 1998)

This first English translation of Trozas, the fourth of Traven's legendary Jungle Novels, brings to completion his epic of the birth of the Mexican Revolution. "A fine and powerful novel...stark in its drama, steamy in its setting, acidic in its irony, relentless in its narrative thrust."-Alan Ryan, Washington Post.

General from the Jungle by B. Traven General from the Jungle, Paperback (February 1995)

The sixth and last of the legendary Jungle Novels, and a masterpiece on guerrilla warfare. The book is filled with marvelously drawn characters, yet the true hero is the rebel army-illiterate, uneducated, and poor, but resourceful and dangerous.

Cotton-Pickers by B. Traven Cotton-Pickers, Paperback (February 1995)

Set in Mexico in the 1920s, this picaresque tale of a laconic American drifter overlays a powerful study of social injustice. "Great storytellers often arise like Judaic just men to exemplify and rehearse the truth for their generation. The elusive B. Traven was just such a man."-Book World.

Rebellion of the Hanged by B. Traven Rebellion of the Hanged, Paperback (August 1994)

The fifth of Traven's Jungle Novels, depicting a revolt by long-oppressed workers in the great mahogany plantations, and culminating in a treacherous march through the jungles at the height of the rainy season. "Traven is a riveting storyteller."-Philadelphia Inquirer.
