Our Sarah: Made in Alaskaby Chuck Jr Heath
Synopses & Reviews
We may think we know Sarah Palin from all the coverage she has received in the political arena, but one-side depictions but media coverage is limited and, Sarah would even say, biased. OUR SARAH is also a bit biased since it's written by Sarah's dad and brother with contributions from many friends and colleagues--these are the people who know her--and love her--best.
Combining the appeal of Sarah Palin's bestselling book, Going Rogue, with the flavor of the hugely successful TV show "Sarah Palin's Alaska," here are intimate stories from Sarah's life along with a celebration of growing up in and sharing all that Alaska means to Sarah and her family. Sarah's dad and brother share great family stories of life in the last frontier--from hiking, camping, fishing, hunting and gold-mining, to marathon running, teaching and community service--first in small ways and then on a national stage. Structured around themes of family, faith, independence, resilience, character, risk-taking and adventure--here is a full and loving portrait of where Sarah Palin came from and what made her the person she is today.
From her early years in the Alaskan wilderness to the electrifying excitement of the campaign trail to her bright future as a star of the Tea Party movement, Sarah Palin's story is truly a remarkable one. In SARAH, her parents, siblings, best friends, college roommates, professional associates and many more open up like never before to reveal the heart and soul of the woman behind the podium.
Through personal stories and photos dating back to her childhood, readers will see a side of Palin previously unknown. Friends and family will share the source of Palin's faith, determination and the persuasive powers that have been used to confront and win over her most vocal critics.
Although Palin's early political heartache necessitated the growing of a thicker skin, she is still a woman of heart who loves her God, family, and country. SARAH is an insider's look at what makes one of the world's most recognized female leaders great.
