by Upton Sinclair
Journalist Upton Sinclair wrote The Jungle to expose the exploitation of American factory workers during the early years of the twentieth century. The book, a shocking tale of conditions in a Chicago meat packing plant, led to federal legislation that formed what would eventually become the Food and Drug Administration.
For the reading project, I downloaded an electronic copy of The Jungle. At my standard font size, the book is 295 pages in length.
