King Coal

A Novel

By Upton Sinclair
Narrated by Grover Gardner / 12 hours 10 minutes

Well known for TheJungle, his scathing exposé of the Chicago meatpacking industry at the turnof the twentieth century, Upton Sinclair here takes on yet another massiveindustry: coal mining.

Based on the 1914 and 1915 Colorado coal strikes, King Coal describes the abhorrent conditionsfaced by workers in the western United States’ coal mining industry during the1910s. The story follows Hal Warner, a rich man looking to get a better view ofthe lives of commoners. It is a tale of struggle, threats, and violence, ofhardened men and the advocacy for workers’ rights. In this business, the roadto unionization is a rocky one.
