"Here is the story of a boy who was destined for something larger than his tribal village, a boy who could not contain his wonder and curiosity about the world beyond the familiar. Even at the expense of disobeying the Regent, he fled with his adoptive brother to the capital city of Johannesburg to find work and see the world, meeting many influential people along the way." "The circumstances of Mandela's youth led him to a perpetual search for what is right and true, in constant pursuit of fairness and recognition for the colorful, valiant history and tradition of black South Africans."--Jacket.
