A vivid account of Nelson Mandela's extraordinary life in the form of a full-colour graphic novel.
Freedom fighter, fugitive, celebrated prisoner, president: the hero of a nation. Nelson Mandela was called a terrorist, forced into hiding, captured, threatened with the death penalty and eventually thrown into prison for 27 years, but nothing could stop him from fighting to liberate his country from the infamous sytem of apartheid, which for so many years sought to separate people by race in South Africa.
A hero in the struggle, he never gave up. Even when he was a prisoner, he worked secretly with his comrades to undermine South Africa's oppressive government.
This is the exciting, true story of a young herd-boy who grew up to become a lawyer, a figher for justice, South Africa's first democratically elected president and the beloved grandfather of a nation.
