Description


The novel chronicles the life of Lithuanian immigrant Jurgis Rudkus, who marries a young woman named Ona at the beginning of the novel, and with her and his extended family, moves to the United States to seek new opportunities. Settling down in the Packingtown area of Chicago, Jurgis initially works in the meat packing plants. This job, however hard he works at it, is not enough by itself to support his family, so several of the other members, like Ona's cousin Marija Berczynskas and his brother-in-law Stanislovas (who is only a child), must take up work as well. The family settles in a house they can barely afford and is poorly constructed, and later on, Jurgis is fired from his job.
