Publisher Comments:

In the fall of 2009, with the publication of her #1 national bestselling memoir, Sarah Palin had the privilege of meeting thousands of everyday Americans on her extraordinary 35-city book tour. Inspired by these encounters, her new book, America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag, celebrates the enduring strengths and virtues that have made this country great.

Framed by her strong belief in the importance of family, faith, and patriotism, the book ranges widely over American history, culture, and current affairs, and reflects on the key values—both national and spiritual-that have been such a profound part of Governor Palins life and continue to inform her vision of Americas future. Written in her own refreshingly candid voice, America By Heart will include selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her-from the nations founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies. Here, too, are portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her deep love of country, her strong rootedness in faith, and her profound love and appreciation of family. She will also draw from personal experience to amplify these timely (and timeless) themes—themes that are sure to inspire her numerous fans and readers all across the country.

Synopsis:

Sarah Palin follows her #1 New York Times bestselling memoir with a heartfelt celebration of American virtues and values.

Synopsis:

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin delivers an intimate and personal look at the woman behind the public servant. In her #1 New York Times bestselling memoir Going Rogue—the bestselling nonfiction book of 2009—Palin gave readers a look at her upbringing, her dynamic career, and her candidacy next to John McCain for the Vice Presidency of the United States.

In America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag, this inspirational follow-up, her reflections on faith, family, and patriotism will read like a bible of American virtues for anyone hoping to understand the truths that lie at the heart of the nation.

Ok - just read the first page, and remember that you'll need to have actually seen the movie. Does Jimmy Stewart actually prevail or does he lose big time and only carries the day because a corrupt senator has remorse? In Sarah's America, the so-called "American values" are truly exemplified by Mr. Smith - money talks, indeed shouts, out the causes of human decency, compassion and ingenuity. Sarah's once again demonstrated that she understands little of America and less about human society.
