As president of the African National Congress and head of South Africa's antiapartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving the nation toward multiracial government and majority rule. He is revered everywhere as a vital force in the fight for human rights and racial equality. LONG WALK TO FREEDOM is his moving and exhilarating autobiography, destined to take its place among the finest memoirs of history's greatest figures. Here for the first time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela tells the extraordinary story of his life--an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR Q: How did you decide to write for 10-14 year olds? A: When I was about 10 -14 years old, I loved reading action & adventure stories and mysteries filled with magic. I used to haunt our local library, borrowing anything with a vaguely magical theme. It had to be well-written with a gripping story, action-filled and a page-turner. (My all-time favourite author? C.S.Lewis.) Q. Is this book for boys or girls? Definitely for both! Boys and girls between the ages of 10-14, teens and preteens, have read and loved it; although lots of adults are enjoying it too! If you love a fast-paced mystery adventure, then THE GOLDEN SWORD, #1 THE CAMELOT INHERITANCE series could be right for you.
