Truth you can tell to a million people it as always the same. lies change every time they are retold.

It was informative, a book as much about Alaska, as it was about Sarah Palin.

Format: Hardcover
If you are interested in reading an autobiography of Chuck Heath Sr.'s life, then this is the book for you. Chapter after chapter are devoted to Chuck's upbringing, his schooling, his hardships, his interest (over interest) in sports...how he was such a great teacher and on and on. Almost every chapter had a sentence or two about Sarah, but that was about it until the very end where it said she lost the election, how nervous they all were and how awful the press was. I was very dissappointed that there was not anything at all about Sarah's relationship with her husband or kids or really anybody for that matter. What did she think? How did she decide to run for V.P. with small children still at home? What did her husband think about this? It was a very boring book and I am sorry I paid money for it. If Chuck Heath wanted to write a book about himself, at least he could have said so up front and not tried to be a "great" author on the back of his daughter. "Our Sarah" should be called, "All About Chuck".

Tons of stuff about her brother. Tons of stuff about his interests, his ideas, his life. Not a hell of a lot about Sarah. She's mentioned, but as a sort of generic afterthought. I could have easily have written a story about my own life and added a few Sarah quotes from news articles to each chapter...and had the same book. Generic blah.

Really lousy exploitive title in my opinion. False advertising. I wanted to read about your sister, not you, Chuck. You said it was about your sister. I feel lied to.

This book spoke to the part of me that loves down to earth type people. The stories may not be politically correct and thank God for that!Our Sarah: Made in Alaska

I loved the melody-vs-harmony way that father and son deliver this engaging family epic. While Sarah is pivotal in the story, surprisingly I didn't find it necessarily Sarah-centric or fawning. The book provides a vibrant perspective of a family of adventurers from Chuck Sr's adventures in Hollywood, to Sally's strong family roots to Hope, Idaho and then Alaska. We get a glimpse of Chuck Jr's love of the Alaskan wilderness panning for gold and the importance of family. It doesn't make the family out to be perfect, but it does provide an intimate perspective of her pivotal role in the '08 campaign. It also provides a grounding to comprehend the forge that built Palin's pragmatic tour-de-force powerhouse personality and convictions into the person she is today. I came away with a new respect for the pioneering spirit that is at the core of what makes not just Sarah Palin but her family true American originals.

Good slant on an important Alaskan woman. The story of the family background is interesting. It portrays what makes up the Alaskan spirit.

I read the entire book in one sitting and wanted more. This book is not just setting the record straight, but has great Alaskan stories that bring home why Alaska is called " The Last Frontier". Sarah's brother, and dad especially seem to be characters, the type of folks that you could sit and listen to tell stories for hours. I laughed out loud at some of these stories and was touched by others. Really, a well-written book- the only downside that it wasn't longer.

This book, written by Sarah's father and brother, gives family background, starting in California in the 1930s, through Idaho, and eventually to Alaska. You can see how the character of Chuck Heath Sr. and life in Alaska has shaped Sarah's character and values. He was a teacher, as is his son, Chuck Heath Jr. The chapters are written alternately by Chuck Sr. and Chuck Jr. The father writes more about the family background, while the brother gives more insight into Sarah's career and the 2008 campaign. This is by far the best information I have read about the family, and it gives me the most insight into where Sarah came from and what made her what she is.
