Synopsis

Tree Shaker The Story of Nelson Mandela by Bill Keller

Through a special collaboration with The New York Times , Kingfisher publishes in-depth narrative non-fiction for young readers. Gripping first-person narratives, written by veteran NYT journalists, bring history and current events to life. Full-colour illustrations, photographs and sidebars explain key concepts, and historical articles from the archives of the NYT place events in a global context.In February 1994, Nelson Mandela visited Robben Island, a desolate rock where he had been a prisoner for 27 years. Days later, his ideals would triumph in an election that changed the climate of oppression in South Africa. This inspiring biography looks at the events that led him from his tribal homeland to the centre of the struggle for racial equality in South Africa.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
