General from the JungleJungle Novels (Volume 6)
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
“Readers who ignore the genius of B. Traven do so at their peril.” - The New York Times
B Traven’s Jungle Novels comprises six books written during the 1930s that observe the poor conditions of the Mexican Indians living in the southern state of Chiapas, whose forced work under exploitative conditions and labor camps foment rebellion and start the beginnings of the Mexican Revolution.
This last installment of Traven’s legendary Jungle novels sees the completion of Ivan R Dee’s fictional multi-volume retelling of the Mexican Revolution. From the art of guerilla warfare to the true-to-life story of the great general Juan Méndez, Traven's masterful storytelling skills are on full display.
"The Jungle Novels constitute one of the richest portraits of revolution in all literature." - University Review
