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.

This is the most incredible story of recent history. As this great man states at the end of this book- "perhaps the deepest parts of oppression bring out the characteristics to overcome..." the story told in this book and the people described is nothing short of the story of the founding fathers of the United States. These people are personalities, people who through the the most inconceivable circumstances, motivated by an unexplainable passion for equality and change, have actually really prevailed and created the most valuable item known to humanity...a free thinking and living piece of land for its citizens in which to properly reside.
P.S -- I do believe there were once Tigers in Africa ;)
