    DescriptionShin Dong-hyuk is the only person born in a North Korean gulag ever to escape -- and Escape from Camp 14 is his story.Twenty-six years ago, Shin Dong-hyuk was born inside Camp 14, one of five sprawling political prisons in the mountains of North Korea. Located about 55 miles north of Pyongyang, the labor camp is a 'complete control district,' a no-exit prison where the only sentence is life. Inmates work 12 to 15-hour days in the camp -- mining coal, building dams, sewing military uniforms -- until they are executed, killed in work-related accidents, or die of illness often triggered by hunger. No one born in Camp 14, or in any North Korean political prison camp, has escaped. No one except Shin?A gripping, memoir with a searing sense of place, Escape from Camp 14 will remove the veil of silence from a dark and secret nation, taking readers to a place they have never before been.
