Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

Chuck, Sr. is a retired teacher and coach who spent the majority of his forty-eight years in Alaska working as a big game guide all over the state. Chuck, Jr. is a school teacher, hockey player, and a longtime seasonal gold miner who has also worked all over the state. Together, they've shared many of their Alaskan adventures and given the reader an inside look at how these experiences helped make Sarah the person she is today.

mybodymyself, January 6, 2013 (view all comments by mybodymyself)
Came upon this particular book when I was browsing through one of the local Barnes and Noble and spotted it. Now, I just can’t wait to read this book because I read both of Ms Palin’s memoirs (Going Rogue: An American Life, 2009 and America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag, 2010) which I found interesting in more ways then one. At the same time did also read her daughter’s Bristol’s memoir (Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, 2011) which she wrote with Nancy French and which I found interesting in more ways then one. And Levi Johnston’s memoir (Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs, 2011) which I found interesting in more ways then one.

Know that I'm only half way though it.

WOW what a memoir/biography. Its really doing justice to Sarah, but her father, brother, mother, sister, husband, kids, grand kid, others in her family, friends.

Think thats it for now.
