Mobster Al "Scarface" Capone, "Machine Gun" Kelly, Robert Stroud ada the Birdman: only the most violent, desperate criminals were sent to Alcatraz Island-"The Rock". Also referred to as "Hellcatraz" by its inmates, this federal prison's conditions were so harsh that escape, riot-even death-were an inmate's only hope. This gripping true crime classic tells the story of life on The Rock and of fourteen ingenious escape attempts by the prisoners, most notably Frank Morris, whose daring plan was the basis for the memorable 1979 Clint Eastwood film Escape from Alcatraz.
