9780738559216: Folsom Prison (Images of America: California)

Folsom Prison is California's second-oldest prison, dating back to 1880. In the decades following the Gold Rush, it housed some of the state's most notorious prisoners in stone, dungeon-like cells behind solid-metal doors; was the first prison with electric power; and for many years provided labor for various state projects, including construction, fabrication, and printing of license plates. Thrust into the public consciousness in the 1960s by high-profile performances from country music's Johnny Cash, the prison remains a notorious and legendary institution. The variety of offenders housed at Folsom are incarcerated for a large gamut of criminal behavior, and the California Department of Corrections has been dedicated to rehabilitation efforts throughout the facility's long history.

About the Author:

Author Jim Brown spent decades on the inside of the prison as a correctional officer and presents here historic images from the Folsom Prison museum to illustrate the incredible story of this place of stone, iron, and humanity--redeemed and incorrigible. In these pages, Brown draws upon his experience and knowledge to tell the stories of the prison's construction, early years, officers, inmates, events such as the famed prison concerts, and distinctive stories of Folsom Prison's unique character.
