Product Description

“The Jungle” recounts the shocking tale of immigrant Jurgis Rudkus and his family, who find themselves at the mercy of a brutal system in the stockyards of Chicago. The original book’s exposure of the dangerous and unsanitary conditions in the meatpacking industry created a public furor that led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act. The mood and atmosphere is captured beautifully by Peter Kuper’s art for this graphic novel adaptation of Upton Sinclair’s classic work.
