Item description for March to The Monteria by Bruno Traven...
An incredible forced march of Indian laborers into the steaming Mexican jungle by vicious, madmen labor agents. They are goping to the monterias, the mahogany forest camps where they work as indentured slaves. Many of these human beings will die in these camps by beatings and hanging (depicted in B. Traven's THE REBELLION OF THE HANGED). Along the way, they make their mark against two of these agents who themselves don't survive the march - right, and justly so - the Indians kill them! These Indians of Southern Mexico become another determined group for "land and freedon' by armed struggle in the Mexican Revolution of 1910. Besides "The Rebellion of The Hanged" - "The General From The Jungle" is another novel dealing with the exploitation of the Indians in Mexico. Bruno Traven captures the spirit of these Indians in his writings. These same Indians in the 1990's revolt against the State as the modern day Zapatista's commanded by sub-comandante Marcos. A Coillector's Edition.
