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