Presenting Peter Kuper's acclaimed adaptation of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle with powerful imagery and bold interplay of art and text. "The Jungle", Sinclair's most influential novel, 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, 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 Kuper's art and text for this graphic novel adaptation of a classic book that is still read by high school students and many others to this day.
