This book is written by the daughter of a prison guard who lived on the 'rock' with her family, but she seems to have managed a fairly unbiased account. There is a trace of hostility when she speaks of the inmates but she does relate the story well,Birdman: The Many Faces of Robert Stroudwithout the usual sentimentality, which allows the reader to make their own mind up about The Birdman.
