Tracing his ancestory through six generations - slaves and freedmen, farmers and blacksmiths, lawyers and architects - back to Africa, Alex Haley discovered a sixteen-year-old youth, Kunta Kinte. It was this young man, who had been torn from his homeland and 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.

Gennemført mesterværk og fantastisk oplæst
Ikke spor underligt, at denne roman er en milepæl i litteraturen, da den endelig får fortalt historien fra taberens side. absolut must read
Highly thought provoking. Kunta Kinte Africa section a little too slow and long, but otherwise very entertaining. Great reading with slave dialect in US dialogue
