The Prospector - Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio

The Prospector is the story of a young man’s quest for his personal identity. Having grown up the privileged son of colonists in Africa, he turns to a life of traveling and adventure after his father dies and a hurricane destroys his plantation. In turns, he becomes a sailor, a treasure hunter, and a soldier in the trenches of France during World War I. A sweeping tale of the beginning of the century, The Prospector is also a highly recommended introduction to Nobel Laureate Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio’s work.
