Nelson Mandela is a lyrically-written and stunningly-illustrated biography. Readers learn of Mandela's time learning from the elders, his education, his rise to power, and his arrest. Nelson Mandela brings to life a modern-day hero. A hero who showed South Africans, and those of us in the rest of the world, that people, those with and without power, can effect change. Review from Reedarama.
