Roots is a highly-praised book, recommended for young people, homeschooling parents and classroom teachers—all human beings eager to widen their understanding of true history. Readers discover the essence of what Native and non-Native people have been to one another in this country. They are reminded of their own capacity for good and for peace and for making a better difference in the world, no matter what their ages or the circumstances of their lives.
