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.

Highly recommended! Much of what you've heard about Sarah Palin is inaccurate if not outright political propaganda. I mean, do you remember who actually said, "I can see Russia from my house?" It was Tina Fey! This book, by her father and elder brother, introduces you to the Sarah the media did everything it could to keep you from meeting, the real person whose real life resembles that of a lot of real Americans. The book blends family history with American history while telling Sarah's personal and political story. You owe it to yourself to get the straight scoop. If you allow the media to shape your opinion about Sarah, you're letting someone else do the thinking for you. That may be easy, but it's not smart.

As are Sarah's and her families other books are good reading, this one is no exception. It's very simple if you like the Palin family you will love reading about them.

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.

I am not finished reading it yet, but I am really enjoying it. I felt that she really got ambushed by the media, so it is interesting to hear the story from the family's side. They seem like a wonderful family to me. I have been to Alaska six times, mostly for fishing, but two family trips too. The Alaskan people are very open and friendly. They have always been fun to visit and to be with. When Sarah Palin was nominated for VP, and gave her speech at the convention I was very energized by her directness, and down to Earth attitude. Her experience in the election I would not wish on anyone. The media showed no interest in an honest and open discourse, just vilification! I would love to meet her sometime, and spend some time in Alaska with the family. The book is written by Sarah's father Chuck Sr, and brother Chuck Jr. It is a loving history of three generations, who they are, their interests, sports, religion, and adventures. These are the kind of people who made our country strong!!

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.
