The Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary was a nearly escape-proof prison located on a small island in San Francisco Bay. America's most dangerous criminals were imprisoned there and endured harsh conditions, including solitary confinement in dark cells. Though the penitentiary was shut down in 1963, visitors have reported hearing mysterious cries from empty cells and seeing ghostly figures that suddenly vanished! Have the troubled spirits of former inmates been sentenced to haunt Alcatraz forever? An exciting narrative format brings the hair-raising history of Alcatraz to life, while providing plenty of creepy details to satisfy young horror fans. Chilling photos and clear, age-appropriate text will keep readers turning the pages to learn more about Alcatraz's spooky prison.
