Perhaps no other of his novels better reveals Giono's perfect balance between lyricism and narrative, description and characterization, the epic and the particular, than "The Horseman on the Roof." This novel, which Giono began writing in 1934 and which was published in 1951, expanded and solidified his reputation as one of Europe's most important writers. This is a novel of adventure, a "roman courtois," that tells the story of Angelo, a nobleman who has been forced to leave Italy because of a duel, and is returning to his homeland by way of Provence. But that region is in the grip of a cholera epidemic, travelers are being imprisoned behind barricades, and exposure to the disease is almost certain. Angelo's escapades, adventures, and heroic self-sacrifice in this hot, hallucinatory landscape, among corpses, criminals and rioting townspeople, share this epic tale

Colline by Jean Giono( Book )
206 editions published between 1000 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,409 libraries worldwide
"Deep in Provence, a century ago, four stone houses perch on a hillside. Wildness presses in from all sides. Beyond a patchwork of fields, a mass of green threatens to overwhelm the village. The animal world--a miming cat, a malevolent boar--displays a mind of its own. The four houses have a dozen residents--and then there is Gagou, a mute drifter. Janet, the eldest of the men, is bedridden; he feels snakes writhing in his fingers and speaks in tongues. Even so, all is well until the village fountain suddenly stops running. From this point on, humans and the natural world are locked in a life-and-death struggle. All the elements--fire, water, earth, and air--come into play. From an early age, Jean Giono roamed the hills of his native Provence. He absorbed oral traditions and, at the same time, devoured the Greek and Roman classics. Giono's startlingly original fusion of idiomatic storytelling and Homeric and Virgilian myth took Paris and New York by storm in 1929. Hill, his first novel and the first winner of the Prix Brentano, comes fully back to life in Paul Eprile's poetic translation"--

123 editions published between 1931 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 978 libraries worldwide
A vigorous anti-war novel. Conscription reaches into the hills as the First World War comes to a small Provencial community one blazing August. A committed pacifist, Giono produced one of the most affecting accounts of war ever written, with its horrifying scenes of war and descriptions of harsh, primitive conditions in the trenches. His fiercely realistic novel contrasts the wholesale destruction of men, land, and animals at the front with the moral disintegration of the lonely and anxious people left behind
