She said he had lived across the ocean near what he called the "Kamby Bolongo" and had been out in the forest one day chopping wood to make a drum when he was set upon by four men, beaten, chained and dragged aboard a slave ship bound for Colonial America. Still vividly remembering the stories after he grew up and became a writer, Haley began to search for documentation that might authenticate the narrative. It took ten years and a half a million miles of travel across three continents to find it, but finally, in an astonishing feat of genealogical detective work, he discovered not only the name of "the African"--Kunta Kinte¿ but the precise location of Juffure, the very village in The Gambia, West Africa, from which he was abducted in 1767 at the age of sixteen and taken on the Lord Ligonier to Maryland and sold to a Virginia planter. Haley has talked in Juffure with his own African sixth cousins. On September 29, 1967, he stood on the dock in Annapolis where his great-great-great-great-grandfather was taken ashore on September 29, 1767. Now he has written the monumental two-century drama of Kunta Kinte and the six generations who came after him¿ slaves and freedmen, farmers and blacksmiths, lumber mill workers and Pullman porters, lawyers and architects and one author. But Haley has done more than recapture the history of his own family. As the first black American writer to trace his origins back to their roots, he has told the story of 25,000,000 Americans of African descent. He has rediscovered for an entire people a rich cultural heritage that slavery took away from them, along with their names and their identities. But Roots speaks, finally, not just to blacks, or to whites, but to all people and all races everywhere, for the story it tells is one of the most eloquent testimonials ever written to the indomitability of the human spirit.

About this Item: Doubleday & Company, Inc, Garden City, NY, 1976. First edition of "the most highly acclaimed book of our time" (Washington Post). Octavo, original half cloth. Boldly signed by Alex Haley on the front free endpaper. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Jacket design by Al Nagy. Published in October 1976 amid significant advance expectations, Roots was immediately successful, garnering a slew of positive reviews and debuting at #5 of The New York Times Best Seller list. By mid-November, it had risen to the #1 spot on the list. The television adaptation of the book aired in January 1977 and within seven months of its release, Roots had sold over 1.5 million copies. In total, Roots spent 22 weeks at the #1 spot on The Times' list, including each of the first 18 weeks of 1977. Ultimately, it was on the list for a total 46 weeks. Together, the success of the novel and its 1977 television adaptation, sparked an explosion of interest in the fields of genealogy and researching family histories. Haley earned a Pulitzer Prize special award in 1977 for Roots. The television miniseries garnered many awards, including nine Emmys and a Peabody. It was remade again in 2016 starring Malachi Kirby, Forest Whitaker, Anna Paquin, Laurence Fishburne and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Seller Inventory # 26041

It was adapted into the hugely popular, 12-hour television miniseries, ROOTS, in 1977 [The first ever TV miniseries], & a 14-hour sequel, Roots: The Next Generations, in 1979. Haley earned a Pulitzer Prize special award in 1977 for Roots & the television miniseries garnered numerous awards, including nine Emmys & a Peabody.

About this Item: Doubleday, Garden City, 1976. Hardcover. First edition. Inscribed by the author on the front endpaper, with four lines and dated 'October 19, 1976'. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. It tells the story of Kunta Kinte, an 18th-century African, captured as an adolescent, sold into slavery in Africa, transported to North America; following his life and the lives of his descendants in the United States down to Haley. The book was a major literary hit out of the gate. Upon its debut it sat at #5 on the New York Times Bestsellers list. While historical fiction or "faction" as Alex Haley called it, it was listed as non-fiction on the NYT list. Within a few weeks of its debut, Roots sat at #1. The novel was so well received that it remained on the list for 46 weeks, perhaps kept on longer because of the 1977 television adaptation of the book. The appeal of the book and adaptation didn't stop there as it garnered Alex Haley a Pulitzer Prize Special Award and the TV series got numerous Peabody and Emmy awards. It would also kickstart the career of several actors. A fine copy in a fine, price-clipped dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 13776
