About This Item

Garden City: Doubleday, 1976. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/very good. Contemporary signed presentation copy, and it's a good association, inscribed in ink, "September 1976. Dinah Shore, lovely, gracious lady - from our family to your family! Sincerely, Alex Haley." Some storage unit mustiness, else near fine in a very good dustjacket. This is Haley's quest for his genealogical history, starting in 1750 (contrast today when "roots" means the Church of the Magic Moonbeam tracing its origins all the way back to 2004). And Roots was a 'just what it needed' contribution to America's bicentennial, historically enlightening and emotionally rewarding. It won a well-deserved Pulitzer Prize and, in 1977, it became the prototype television documentary miniseries, winning 9 Emmys.
