Description

The Jungle recounts the shocking tales 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 expose of the dangerous and unsavory practices in the meatpacking industry created a public furore that led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act. The mood and atmosphere of the times is captured beautifully by Peter Kuper's artwork.
