Set in Mexico during the revolution THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE is a story of danger and adventure mystery and intrigue It is the tale of three Americans and their search for gold in the rugged Sierra Madres br br Our literature is replete with the romance of riches for free But in THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE the litany of desire reveals itself in an unusual and extraordinary way, 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 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 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, The Carreta is the second of B Traven s six Jungle Novels which together form an epic of the birth of the Mexican Revolution The young Indian who is the hero of The Carreta is an ox cart driver More sophisticated than most of his companions who work in debt slavery in the great mahogany plantations Andres can read and hopes to go back to his wife But he labors with no awareness of how really impossible this is Pressing down on him is the plight of his father who was also sold to the monteria Andres believes he can never return to his wife until he repays his father s debt Traven s purpose in the Jungle Novels is to describe the conditions of a people who are ripe for revolt and to trace the beginnings of consciousness which result in the determination to revolt In The Carreta he brings his remarkable narrative talents to bear on the coming of age of Andres and the oppressive world in which he finds he must make his way Traven is a very great writer His work must be read New York Times Book Review
