9780099362814: Roots

Tracing his ancestry through six generations - slaves and freedmen, farmers and blacksmiths, lawyers and architects - back to Africa, Alex Haley discovered a sixteen-year-old youth, Kunta Kinte. It was this young man, who had been torn from his homeland and in torment and anguish brought to the slave markets of the New World, who held the key to Haley's deep and distant past.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the U.S. National Book Award.

Review:

"The book is an act of love, and it is this which makes it haunting" ( New York Times)

"A gripping mixture of urban confessional and political manifesto, it not only inspired a generation of black activists, but drove home the bitter realities of racism to a mainstream white liberal audience" ( Observer)

"Groundbreaking" ( Associated Press)

"A Pulitzer Prize-winning story about the family ancestry of author Alex Haley... [and] a symbolic chronicle of the odyssey of African Americans from the continent of Africa to a land not of their choosing" ( Washington Post)

From the Publisher:

The extraordinary account of Alex Haley's own twelve-year search for his family's origins
