A Month in the Jungle by Frederick Van Patten Summary

Henry Cooper, an aspiring San Francisco screenwriter, has his first real writing job scripting a B-movie. The melodramatic story takes place on a coffee plantation in Africa during WWI, and although it isn't what Henry would call art, it's a potential break for his early career. On a shoestring budget, the producer secures the use of a run-down antebellum rice plantation in the sweltering heat of South Carolina's swamp country. And the cast and crew have only a month to get the film completed. During his month in the jungle, Henry struggles to find his creative voice and to nurture a budding affair. But he nearly ruins his career when he becomes entangled in politics. He joins in a collaboration with the brilliant cinematographer, Bjorn Depew, against the perverse and controlling director, Teddy Rollick, and it nearly costs him his job. Romance, artistry, betrayal and murder pepper the plot of this spicy novel as the filmmakers rush toward their goal to complete the film on time and under budget.

Day and Night in Limbo by Lonkog, Jean Tardif Summary

With humour, insight and irony, Lonkog recounts the joys and contradictions of daily life in a Northern Cameroon village. Living in Carrefour Poli in Northern Cameroon was never easy. How far will one have to go for drinking water during the dry season? Will there be money for kerosene to fill the lamp tank? For batteries for the torch? For a bowl of corn to make 'fufu' for the family? Will there be a night encounter with the poison of a snake or scorpion? The man of Carrefour Poli imagines when he last had a bottle of beer and when he will next have another. Children sit in class staring at the teacher, while their work suffers. People sit under trees for shade only to cut them down for firewood. Ministers run up and down, working very hard and sweating, but little changes. Day and night people turn around on the same spot. It takes a long time to build a nation. Everything is in limbo.

The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling Summary

'The Jungle Book' introduces Mowgli, the human foundling adopted by a family of wolves. It tells of the enmity between him and the tiger Shere Khan, who killed Mowgli's parents, and of the friendship between the man-cub and Bagheera, the black panther, and Baloo, the sleepy brown bear, who instructs Mowgli in the Laws of the Jungle. 'The Second Jungle Book' contains some of the most thrilling of the Mowgli stories. It includes 'Red Dog', in which Mowgli forms an unlikely alliance with the python Kaa, 'How Fear Came' and 'Letting in the Jungle' as well as 'The Spring Running', which brings Mowgli to manhood and the realisation that he must leave Bagheera, Baloo and his other friends for the world of man. AUTHOR: Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936) was an English poet, short-story writer and novelist. His stories of the British in India reached their height of popularity in the 1890s, but opinion turned against him as the public perception of the days of the Empire changed. With the passing of years, he can now be viewed from a historical perspective as a recorder of the world as it was then. His books for children, including 'The Jungle Book' and 'The Second Jungle' have an enduring appeal. SELLING POINTS: New Jungle Book Disney CGI movie April 2016 LAC

The Jungle, Japanese and the British Commonwealth Armies at War, 1941-45 by Tim Moreman Summary

This book focuses on the British Commonwealth armies in SE Asia and the SW Pacific during the Second World War, which, following the disastrous Malayan and Burma campaigns, had to hurriedly re-train, re-equip and re-organise their demoralised troops to fight a conventional jungle war against the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA). British, Indian and Australian troops faced formidable problems conducting operations across inaccessible, rugged and jungle-covered mountains on the borders of Burma, in New Guinea and on the islands of the SW Pacific. Yet within a remarkably short time they adapted to the exigencies of conventional jungle warfare and later inflicted shattering defeats on the Japanese. This study will trace how the military effectiveness of the Australian Army and the last great imperial British Army in SE Asia was so dramatically transformed, with particular attention to the two key factors of tactical doctrine and specialised training in jungle warfare. It will closely examine how lessons were learnt and passed on between the British, Indian and Australian armies. The book will also briefly cover the various changes in military organisation, medical support and equipment introduced by the military authorities in SE Asia and Australia, as well as covering the techniques evolved to deliver effective air support to ground troops. To demonstrate the importance of these changes, the battlefield performance of imperial troops in such contrasting operations as the First Arakan Campaign, fighting along the Kokoda Trail and the defeat of the IJA at Imphal and Kohima will be described in detail.

The Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling Summary

The Jungle Books can be regarded as classic stories told by an adult to children. But they also constitute a complex literary work of art in which the whole of Kipling's philosophy of life is expressed in miniature. They are best known for the `Mowgli' stories; the tale of a baby abandoned and brought up by wolves, educated in the ways and secrets of the jungle by Kaa the python, Baloo the bear, and Bagheera the black panther. The stories, a mixture of fantasy, myth, and magic, are underpinned by Kipling's abiding preoccupation with the theme of self-discovery, and the nature of the `Law'. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
