The Jungle is a 1906 novel written by the American journalist and novelist Upton Sinclair (1878–1968). Sinclair wrote the novel to portray the lives of immigrants in the United States in Chicago and similar industrialized cities. Many readers were most concerned with his exposure of health violations and unsanitary practices in the American meatpacking industry during the early 20th century, based on an investigation he did for a socialist newspaper.

Semi-horrifying, but amazing book... and free! Highly recommended.
Such a great book! Give it a try
Fond memories of ninth grade English class. First time I heard the term "muck-racking". As the first generation of an Irish immigrant I can definitely understand the search for a better life. A truly underrated classic
