Summary
"Escape from the ordinary and break into Alcatraz, America's most famous prison! The island of Alcatraz has always been a place that's fascinated visitors, from the Native American tribes who believed it was home to evil spirits to the Spanish explorers who discovered the island. In modern times, it was a federal prison for only 29 years, but now draws over a million visitors each year. Learn the history of America's most famous prison, from its initial construction as a fort in the 1800s, to its most famous residents such as Al Capone and 'Machine Gun' Kelly. Where Is Alcatraz? also chronicles some of the most exciting escape attempts--even one that involved chipping through stone with spoons and constructing rafts out of raincoats!"--
