I received this from bookmooch.com, it came from Germany which is a change because most of my books just come from elsewhere in the UK.
The Jungle by Upton Sinclair (I think it's funny that the author's first name is the name of the town where I live)
In this powerful book we enter the world of Jurgis Rudkus, a young Lithuanian immigrant who arrives in America filled with dreams of wealth, freedom, and opportunity. And we discover, with him, the astonishing truth about "Packingtown," the busy, flourishing, filthy Chicago stockyards, where new world visions perish in a jungle of human suffering. Upton Sinclair, master of the "muckraking" novel, here explores the workingman's lot at the turn of the century: the backbreaking labour, the injustices of "wage-slavery," the bewildering chaos of urban life.In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.
