The thirteenth novel in Amile Zolaas great Rougon-Macquart sequence, "Germinal" expresses outrage at the exploitation of the many by the few, but also shows humanityas capacity for compassion and hope. Etienne Lantier, an unemployed railway worker, is a clever but uneducated young man with a dangerous temper. Forced to take a back-breaking job at Le Voreux mine when he cannot get other work, he discovers that his fellow miners are ill, hungry, and in debt, unable to feed and clothe their families. When conditions in the mining community deteriorate even further, Lantier finds himself leading a strike that could mean starvation or salvation for all.

display_description In the Maheus family, the father and three of seven children work brutal hours to extract coal far beneath the earth amid hazards of landslides, fire, poisoned air, and poisoned health. Then comes the idea of a workers' revolt, and soon the settlement is aflame. Zola chronicles the conflicts, lusts, and deprivation of life in the coal fields of nineteenth-century France.
