In the novel, Roots the author Alex Haley traces 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 torment and anguish brought to the slave markets of the new world, who held the key to Haley's deep and distant past.
The novel Roots is an excellent addition to your American history collection or home library.

Our vintage books are authentic, sustainable, and unique.
Approximately 640,000 tons of books are deposited in the landfill annually at an average weight of 4 pounds each. This averages out to about 320 million books discarded each year that are not recycled. Wow!
As avid readers become more conscious of the environmental consequence of disposable books, we are looking for a more sustainable way to shop.
Most readers don't imagine when buying a new book how much paper we are using and what will happen to that paper in a year or two.
All of my vintage books are sourced from personal collections found in estate sales.
I'm passionate about preserving our past and passionate about the power of books to tell stories.
Because my goal at Reading Vintage is to connect readers to books, I hope to save these books from the landfill.
I'm proud to offer these books that are gently used, so you can find the titles you love in a way that's more environmentally friendly.
