Michelle Obama's family saga is a remarkable, quintessentially American story- a journey from slavery to the White House in five generations. In this prodigiously researched epic. New York Times correspondent Rachel Swarns traces that complex and fascinating tale- from the men who fought in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, to the mothers and fathers who endured the horrors of slavery and the indignities of segregation to build a better future for their children- uncovering details about Mrs. Obama's black, white and multiracial forebears. 391 pages
