The story of the family background is interesting.
Diane Hanger
Truth you can tell to a million people it as always the same. lies change every time they are retold.
John W Haag
It was informative, a book as much about Alaska, as it was about Sarah Palin.

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.

If you want a picture of Sarah Palin with her dad then this is the book for you. If you are looking for something to read move on.

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.

Poor Palin. Everyone is trying to make money off of her/from her. Even her family.
Poorly written fiction. Someday she will be a trivial pursuit question. Her 15 minutes are over and she should go quietly back to Alaska and get educated. And eat.

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.

How many times I have heard someone say negative things about Sarah, based on lies, I can't even begin to count. I couldn't believe the classless comment that greeted me on this site from someone who had obviously not even read the book. Why do these lies go on? How course can a society become before it just flat out fails. The Sarah haters are truly a symptom.

I came here to write a review because I'd just finished doing my first one for Amazon on a book called Fatal Forecast. What a tale. The main hero of that book, other than the Coast Guard, & the fishermen, is someone like Sarah, that I would be honored to meet. Someone who is self made, self reliant, hard working, good hearted, and honest.

All of you people out there who jump to say something mean and nasty about Sarah and her family should take the time to do your own research and thinking. If you did, you couldn't possibly dislike Sarah Palin, you just couldn't. Maybe you would disagree with some of her ideas and beliefs, but you would have to come to regret your nasty comments.

I love listening to books and this one did not disappoint. The 2 Chucks are a delight. Love, honesty, and humor flow easily from this collection of thoughts and anecdotes and yes, facts about Sarah. You get a glimpse of what it'd be like to be raised in a setting that nurtures good wholesome living. This is a book that will not be traded back in towards another, it is one to stay treasured in my collection.

I highly recommend this book. It would make a great Christmas or Holiday gift. It carries the perfect message for any family, for any season.

My husband and I enjoyed hearing this perspective on Sarah Palin. We like to listen to audio books when we travel and this book made the time pass very pleasantly.
