"A visual journey documenting Nelson Mandela's twenty-seven years in prison on Robben Island, A Prisoner in the Garden presents for the first time previously unpublished images, documents, and diary and letter extracts, as well as some original notes from the writing of Mandela's autobiography, A Long Walk to Freedom, and other archival material that helps illustrate the life in jail of the world's most famous political prisoner. A Prisoner in the Garden digs deeper into Mandela's prison years, providing even more insight into the prison life of one of the elder statesmen of our time. Rich in imagery, A Prisoner in the Garden tells the complete story of the incarceration of Nelson Mandela."--Jacket.
