About This Item

Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc, 1976. Book Club Edition. good, fair to good. 688, DJ somewhat worn/soiled: small edge tears/chips, some wrinkling to endpapers. Inscribed by the author. Haley's epic about several generations of African-Americans was made into a blockbuster television mini-series. Perhaps more than any other single work, this one changed American perceptions of the past.

Synopsis

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. Originally published: Garden City, N.Y. : Doubleday, 1976.
