And the "real" Alaska - certainly the most unique, non-phoniest place on earth. Delightful, touching story about young women trying their darnedest.

This is an easy read. The author, with personal interviews with people giving first person (they were there & gave their name) details, the author has given interesting facts and the feeling that you were there. Much in this book validates things GovPalin has said and reveals much about her integrity and character. Very enjoyable read.

Format: Hardcover
Mike Shropshire's writing style is direct and engaging, imbued with a continuous down-home kind of humor entirely suited to his subject. I learned so many things about Alaska, often astonishing, that it has become a real place to me. This is an impishly readable kind of history writing, the kind you don't easily put down. Historically, the state started out as a kind of American Australia, a wide-open place for the greedy, those who needed to escape a nefarious past, and misfits of all kinds. Although its culture is now closer to the American norm, it has retained a lot of this colorful verve, that directness of personal style that we see in Sarah Palin herself. These folks are survivors, as Mike points out again and again, of a particularly brutal environment beyond the imagination of Lower 48ers like myself. And all of that is infused into this wonderful underdog-makes-good story of the `82 Wasilla Warriors girls' basketball team, and importantly, about the makeup of the then-Sarah Heath, the relentless point guard and leader of that bunch, and the life stories of many of the people connected to her.
