In words and photographs, this book captures the most famous -- or infamous -- aspect of the island's history, its years as a maximum-security federal penitentiary. Called variously "Uncle Sam's Devil's Island, " "Hellcatraz, " and other fearsome names, Alcatraz had a reputation among convicts as the prison of last resort.
