Product Details
"I wrote with tears and anguish, pouring into the pages all the pain that life had meant to me."--Upton Sinclair

Ranking alongside Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin as a novel that has galvanized public opinion, The Jungle tells the story of Jurgis Rudkus, a young immigrant who came to the New World to find a better life. Instead, he is confronted with the horrors of the slaughterhouses, barbarous working conditions, crushing poverty, disease, and despair.

Upton Sinclair vividly depicted factory life in Chicago in the first years of the twentieth century, and the harrowing scenes he related aroused the indignation of the public and forced a government investigation that led to the passage of pure food laws. A hundred years later, The Jungle continues to pack the same emotional power it did when it was first published.

[*] Buyers will receive rewards credits (Rewards) to their rewards account as set forth in seller’s listing. In the near future, Public Market plans to launch the Patron token (PTRN), a blockchain-based rewards token. PTRN will exist on the Ethereum blockchain as a store of value and will contribute toward unlocking benefits in our upcoming membership program. Once the PTRN tokens have been made available to the public, your Rewards may be redeemed, at the option of the company, only for PTRN tokens at the then-market value. The PTRN token may then be deposited to your crypto wallet (see Rewards Terms for process). If PTRN tokens are not made available to the public by March 31, 2020, you may request redemption of the amount of Rewards in your Rewards account, and Company will deliver the Rewards to you in the form of, in its discretion, either (a) USD; or (b) an equivalent credit (e.g., Public Market store credit or other value). If the PTRN token is made available to the public, rewards are not redeemable in USD or an equivalent credit. Rewards are available only to US-based buyers using a US shipping and billing address. See How It Works, FAQs and Rewards Terms for more information.
