Mandela, Nelson

Long Walk to Freedom

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Paddy Bouma. Abridged by Chris van Wyk. At the start of this abridged autobiography, Mandela's gentle voice recollects a near idyllic childhood. Ensuing years encompass his association with the ANC, the opening of his law office, and his imprisonment; the book ends in 1994 when Mandela is elected president of South Africa. Butter-hued pages and warm-toned illustrations loosely outlined in black cast a rich glow over the story. Timeline. Glos.
