The book that inspired the major new motion picture Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world. 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.

An Amazing Journey
August 19th, 2014
Long Walk to Freedom is the journey through Mandela's heart, soul, and mind, as he struggles to find his way before leading his people, black and white, to the dawning of a country, once blind folded by oppression and apartheid, to a beacon of possibility of what the world can achieve through patients, love, and trust. Mandiba symbolizes the strength, courage, and wisdom leaders who must emerge if our world is going to survive the 21st century. This book was more than a man facing and over coming his oppressors. This book is about truth and the search for it. "Search ye for the truth and the truth shall set you FREE!!!" Mandela's journey took him and a nation through the prison of despair and isolation, triumphantly emering as a world leader and a nation setting ing the standards of possibility. This book has ensured my next journey will be to South Africa
