This is my America, from my heart, and by my heart. I give it now to my children and grandchildren, and to yours, so they will always know what it was like in America when people were free.Since the publication of her bestselling memoir, Going Rogue, in 2009, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has traveled the country extensively. She has visited cities and towns in almost every state, dropped in on military bases, given talks and speeches to small groups and at massive rallies. Throughout her travels, she has been privileged to meet thousands of Americans—ordinary men and women who have shared with her their hopes and dreams, their love of country, and their fears about what lies ahead. Governor Palin, inspired by these encounters, celebrates in her new book the enduring strengths and virtues that have made this country a beacon of liberty and hope for the rest of the world. America by Heart is a highly personal testament to her deep love of country, her strong roots in faith, and her profound appreciation of family. Ranging widely over American history, culture, and current affairs, Governor Palin reflects on the key values that have been such an essential part of her own life and that continue to inform her vision of America’s future. The book also includes brief readings from classic and contemporary texts that have moved and inspired her, as well as portraits of Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires. Informed by Palin’s own principles and deepest feelings, graced with intimate memories, this remarkable book gives us a close-up view of an extraordinary woman who is not afraid to speak out and defend the American values in which she so deeply believes.

| The Restoring Honor rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall on August 28, 2010, in Washington, D.C., drew an estimated 500,000 people. Glenn Beck headlined the peaceful patriot celebration on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The words King spoke 47 years earlier changed the course of civil rights in America for the better. His niece Dr. Alveda King graced us with her presence at our rally that warm Washington day. |

I have been reading this book nightly to my ferrets. Yeah, you heard me! I have illegal ferrets in California! They will have to take these ferrets from my cold dead hands! The tiny voices of the ferrets are crying for freedom, and I intend to lead the fight! Sometimes I look at their little faces while I read this book and they almost look like they are wearing little army helmets and are prepared to enter battle in gods war against tyranny and injustice. There have been times when I felt that the little ferrets have begun to lose hope, but every night I read this book to them make them realize that they are fighting the good fight, and will be victorious! You are my hero Sarah!!
I found this book to contain little new. It was Obama bad...Reagan great with no real analysis of what either had done. If Obama did it, or proposed it, it must be wrong with little to support her comments. The same occurred, in reverse, for Reagan. She seemed to ignore his more obvious flaws and tried to paint everything he did as great.
Throughout the book there are misstatements of fact when it suits her purpose. Some is current, while some was historical. I can't believe she didn't know that what she was writing was wrong, and if she didn't, then maybe she needs to do a little research into a subject before spouting off.
I know there are people that think she is stupid, which I believe is a dangerous mistake. On the contrary, I believe she is quite intelligent but she doesn't use her intelligence when making statements. One possibility is that she intentionally does not want to let on that she is intellectually on a par with those she labels as "elite" in order to deliberately deceive her base. Either that, or she is just intellectually lazy.
This is a book for the base (and to make some money) and should be seen as such. She doesn't reveal much new and the rhetoric is about the same as always. If you love Palin, you will love the book. If you are not a fan, you won't like this book.
