Roots is a beautiful story, extremely well researched history of one African American family from the time of the capture and transport of the progenitor to the present. Gives a realistic picture of slavery in the South in the plantations. The last chapter or two are fantastic because author Alex Haley describes his family journey in overcoming prejudice.

Roots is an excellent addition to your vintage Alex Haley collection or home library.
