On a November night in 1984, Susan Rosenberg sat in the passenger seat of a U-Haul as it swerved along the New Jersey Turnpike. At the wheel was a fellow political activist. In the back were 740 pounds of dynamite and assorted guns. While unloading the U-Haul at the storage facility, Rosenberg was arrested and sentenced to an unprecedented 58 years for possession of weapons and explosives. Now, in this powerful memoir, Rosenberg recounts her journey from the impassioned idealism of the 1960s to life as a political prisoner in her own country.
