I have always been fascinated with Alcatraz...not sure where that came from...but ever since I can remember I have wanted to visit there and read everything I can about that notorious prison. I found this book today at a garage sale for 25 cents...imagine my surprise when I started reading it and found that it was inscribed by the author!! A real life, Alcatraz inmate. SOOO cool! Anyway, the book looks to be great.
