Publisher Comments:

Let Southbound take you back in time and uncover the rich history of a South African icon-Robben Island-a desolate little island off the coast of Cape Town in the bleak Atlantic, that has come to symbolize to the world the very essence of the struggle for freedom.* How the island came to prominence with the arrival of the early Dutch seafarers* How the British took control and used the island as a political prison for the rebellious Xhosa chiefs during the Frontier Wars of the nineteenth century* The island as a military and naval outpost during World War II* The brutal apartheid years and Robben Island becomes the dumping ground for ANC and PAC political prisoners* How the prisoners organized the resistance struggle from the inside, how they maintained their sanity and how they never lost hope * Exclusive interview with Matlakana Philemon Tefu-former political prisoner incarcerated for 21 years * Detailed maps, color photographs, route guides* Comprehensive listings of tours on offer, museums and other places of interest
