SUMMARY
The Fading Voices of Alcatraz is a ten chapter work that focuses on the United States Federal Penitentiary era (1934-1963) of Alcatraz Island, San Francisco Bay, California. The complete history of Alcatraz Island includes such topics as early Native American, Spanish discovery, military fort, military prison, federal penitentiary, Indian occupation, and National Park. Each era is briefly explored, enhancing the rich story of the legendary island that is simply known as, 'The Rock.' Shared accounts by the actual Correctional Officers and Prisoners is the trove of treasure to be discovered within the pages of this book. The tales are as inspiring and fascinating as the true historians who shared them. Historically compelling, The Fading Voices of Alcatraz is both educational and entertaining.
