    After over a decade of research, Perry M. Johnson, a former warden of Jackson Prison, has pieced together the untold story of how Michigan's State Prison of Southern Michigan at Jackson came to be the World's Largest Walled Prison. Johnson follows the twisted roots of politics, personalities, notorious prisoners and more.

    Research at the Michigan Archives and complimented by his own personal records and archives, Johnson has access to and insider knowledge of many details that will astound readers.

    Johnson's writing brings these stories to life in a compelling way.

    I could not put this book down. Of particular interest are the chapters dealing with how the Purple Gang arranged and carried out a hit on a Michigan Senator while serving time in Jackson; Details of the 1952 riot; and the famous helicopter escape in the 1970's.

    This isn't just a book of facts, though. These are stories of real people, leaders and losers, criminals and the innocent--and not all of the criminals were the ones serving time.

    Fascinating read--highly recommended.

    A good look into the past. This place has so many sordid tales confined within its walls. The ghosts will howl for ages.
