Bobby Sands was twenty-seven years old when he died.
He spent almost nine years of his life in prison because of his Irish republican activities.
He died, in prison, on 5 May 1981, on the sixty-sixth day of his hunger strike at Long Kesh, outside Belfast.
This book documents a day in the life of Bobby Sands.
It is a tale of human bravery, endurance and courage against a backdrop of suffering, terror and harassment.
It will live on as a constant reminder of events that should never have happened -- and will hopefully never happen again.
