It was four o'clock when the ceremony was over and the carriages began to arrive. (from the first line)
The classic 1906 novel, a political commentary on the conditions endured by factory laborers in Chicago that eventually led to the national reform of the meat packing industry and passage of pure food laws, presents the story of an immigrant family who struggles to survive in the New World. Includes a new afterword by Dr. Barry Sears.
From the Publisher:
Reissued to celebrate its 100th anniversary, this timeless story captures the horrifying conditions of the Chicago stockyards through the eyes of a young immigrant named Jurgis Rudkus who struggles to find a better life in America. Reissue.
Annotation:
Upton Sinclair's classic work of muckraking fiction tells the unsavory truth about Chicago's stockyards at the turn of the 20th century.
