Product Description

Nelson Mandela comes to life for readers in this portrait of a diplomatic man whose unwavering commitment to freedom and unity gained him both the Nobel Peace Prize and Time's Man of the Year honor in 1993. Born in 1918 as the son of a Thembu chief in South Africa, Mandela began his life-long campaign against white colonial rule while a college student.

Kramer's eloquent and approachable text describes the leader's dedication to nonviolence, his role in the African National Congress, and his arrest in 1962 for sabotage and conspiracy. During his 27 years in prison, Mandela continued his fight for a democratic and free society, and ultimately was released and elected president of South Africa.

For children, this is an inspiring story of someone whose hard work and devotion to a good cause pays off in the end. Ages 8 to 12. 64 pages - includes full color photographs.
