Why We Love This

Roots: The Saga of an American Family by Alex Haley. Garden City: Doubleday Company, 1976. First edition. 578 pages. Hardcover with dust jacket. The epic story of the author's search for his roots and the tale he weaves of his African ancestor Kunta Kinte, who was snatched from his home in West Africa to a life in slavery. The novel, coupled with a critically acclaimed mini-series based on the book, was a cultural sensation in the late 1970s that still resonates today.
