In Michael Esslinger's latest book, Letters From Alcatraz, the prisoners' stories come to life in their own words. With over twenty years of research, Esslinger, author of Alcatraz: Definitive History of the Penitentiary Years, has salvaged and compiled an extraordinary collection of inmates' letters, many never before published.

• A foreword by former Alcatraz Officer: Larry Quilligan
• Over 280 photos depicting inmates and the prison workforce
• Over 125 letters and original correspondence from inmates both on-and-off the Rock
