Book - Birdman: Robert Stroud (Autographed on Alcatraz!)


Regular price $13.95

Was he the earnest, warm-hearted "bird doctor" and writer of two books? Or was he a far more flamboyant and diabolical double-murderer, whose event-filled, tragicomic life converted a 12-year conviction into a 54-year death sentence? Meticulously researched, with never-before-published prison reports and Stroud's own writings, with quotes from prisoners, officers, psychologists, and avian pathologists, Birdman explodes the myths surrounding Robert Stroud.
