In 1963, just weeks before the original publication of this book, the last prisoner was escorted off Devila€™s Island and Alcatraz ceased to be a prison. Author J. Campbell Bruce chronicles in spellbinding detail the Rocka€™s transition from a Spanish fort to the maximum-security penitentiary that housed such infamous inmates as Robert Stroud, aka the Birdman of Alcatraz, and mobster Al a€œScarfacea€ Capone. The chapters describing the daring escape attempts by Frank Morris and two accomplices from this a€œinescapablea€ prison became the basis for the 1979 Clint Eastwood movie. Discover the intriguing and absorbing saga of Alcatraz, whose name is still synonymous with punitive isolation and deprivation, where Americaa€™s most violent and notorious prisoners resided in tortuous proximity to one of the worlda€™s favorite cities. The true-crime classic first published in 1963 is reissued in this special edition. Includes archival photos of the prison and prison life.
