Book Description

"Jacquou The Rebel," is perhaps the most important and typical of Eugene Le Roy's five novels. A portrait of rural rife in Perigord between 1810 and 1830, it is a study of the oppressed, underfed peasants who resisted the tyranny of their overlords.
In the vast forests of the nobility, the miserable, starving peasant farmers might not snare a rabbit for food lawfully. For the aftermath of such an offense, Jacquou's father was sent to prison and his mother perished soon afterwards from the hardships of her bitter life. Jacquou became a rebel and finally obtained relief and better conditions for his community.
Le Roy was himself born in Perigord, at Hautefort, in 1830. He spent the early part of his life in the army, fighting against Austria with the Italians in 1859. In the FrancoPrussian war he learned to know the Germans at first hand. Later he retired to a governmental position at Bordeaux, where he died in 1907.
This classic English language translation is by Eleanor Stimson Brooks.
