1910. Sinclair, American novelist, essayist, playwright, and short story writer, whose works reflected his socialistic views. Among his most famous books is The Jungle, which launched a government investigation of the meatpacking plants of Chicago, and changed the food laws of America. Samuel the Seeker begins: Samuel, said old Ephraim, Seek, and ye shall find. He had written those words upon the little picture of Samuel’s mother, which hung in that corner of the old attic which served as the boy’s bedroom; and so Samuel grew up with the knowledge that he, too, was one of the Seekers. Just what he was to seek, and just how he was to seek it, were matters of uncertainty-they were part of the search. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
