The Cotton-Pickers

by B. Traven (Author)
Unlimited loans, 2 years, One at a time

The first novel from the elusive author of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

Set in the 1920s in Mexico, B. Traven?s The Cotton-Pickers tells the story of Gerald Gales, who drifts in and out of jobs--on a cotton plantation, an oil field, in a pastry shop, and on a ranch--exposing the dangerous exploitation at each station and fomenting workers? rights along the way. Adventurous, funny, and full of humanity, The Cotton-Pickers challenges and delights readers to this day.

"B. Traven is coming to be recognized as one of the narrative masters of the twentieth century." The New York Times
