Hadland A (2003) Who Was . . . Nelson Mandela: The Prisoner who became a President. Who was series. London: Short Books. http://shortbooks.co.uk/book/who-was-nelson-mandela
Nelson was a young African boy with a reputation for trouble-making. Who would have thought he would one day lead his people to freedom?
Nelson grew up at a time when black Africans suffered terrible injustice. He was determined to change this - even if it meant a terrible personal danger. Twenty seven years of his life were spent in prison, and everyone seemed to be against him - even his own family - but Nelson never stopped fighting for what he believed in: true equality for all, no matter what the colour of their skin.
