The Jungle: A Penguin Enriched eBook Classic - Upton Sinclair $.01

Only at Amazon so far:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Jungle-Enr...+eBook+Classic

Quote:
Upton Sinclair's dramatic and deeply moving story exposed the brutal conditions in the Chicago stockyards at the turn of the nineteenth century and brought into sharp moral focus the appalling odds against which immigrants and other working people struggled for their share of the American dream. Denounced by the conservative press as an un-American libel on the meatpacking industry, the book was championed by more progressive thinkers, including then President Theodore Roosevelt, and was a major catalyst to the passing of the Pure Food and Meat Inspection act, which has tremendous impact to this day.

Enriched eBook Features Editor Jonathan Beecher Field provides the following specially commissioned features for this Enriched eBook Classic:

* Chronology

* Filmography (and the 1914 The Jungle Film Poster)

* Early Twentieth-Century Reviews of The Jungle

* Suggestions for Further Reading

* The Jungle and the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906

* The Jungle Book Cover Designs

* Federal Food and Drugs Act of 1906

* Immigrants and the Meatpacking Industry, Then and Now

* Images of the Chicago Stockyards

* Images of Cuts of Beef and Pork

* Enriched eBook Notes

The enriched eBook format invites readers to go beyond the pages of these beloved works and gain more insight into the life and times of an author and the period in which the book was originally written for a rich reading experience.
