About this title


Written in chilling detail, this novel describes the effect of World War I on a small community in Provence. In some of the most fiercely realistic and horrifying scenes of war ever recreated in literature, this story evokes the harsh, primitive conditions in the trenches as well as the loneliness and anxiety experienced by those left at home. The gradual disintegration of normal life and morals in areas far from the fighting grimly parallels the wholesale destruction of men, land, and animals at the front.

About the Author:

Jean Giono wrote more than 30 novels as well as many volumes of short stories, plays, poetry, essays, and film scripts. Imprisoned at the beginning of World War II for his pacifist views, he was wrongly imprisoned again for collaboration at the war’s end. The author of the play The Horseman on the Roof and the much-acclaimed The Man Who Planted Trees, he is now firmly established as among the most distinguished of French writers.
