We may think we know Sarah Palin from all the coverage she has received in the political arena, but one-side depictions but media coverage is limited and, Sarah would even say, biased. Our Sarah is also a bit biased since it's written by Sarah's dad and brother with contributions from many friends and colleagues - these are the people who know her - and love her - best.
Combining the appeal of Sarah Palin's best-selling book, Going Rogue, with the flavor of the hugely successful TV show Sarah Palin's Alaska, here are intimate stories from Sarah's life along with a celebration of growing up in and sharing all that Alaska means to Sarah and her family. Sarah's dad and brother share great family stories of life in the last frontier - from hiking, camping, fishing, hunting and gold-mining, to marathon running, teaching and community service - first in small ways and then on a national stage. Structured around themes of family, faith, independence, resilience, character, risk-taking, and adventure - here is a full and loving portrait of where Sarah Palin came from and what made her the person she is today.
If you could sum up Our Sarah in three words, what would they be?
Our Sarah was so very informative, extremely interesting, and definitely encouraging.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Our Sarah?
Chuck spoke about their family's way of knowing and caring about how each family member was doing without being intrusive into their lives. This is profound. To have this kind of support along with the freedom to live life is a wonderful thing.
Have you listened to any of Chuck Heath, Jr. and Chuck Heath, Sr. ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, I have not heard either of the Heaths before. I would like to hear more though!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book reminded me to, in the words of Elisabeth Elliot, "do the next thing". To keep moving forward in smooth roads and adversity. Basically, it seems that I would have subtitled the book - "Perseverance!"
Any additional comments?
Loved the story and the authentic narration. It was wonderful to hear the story of an American family who care about each other as well as others in the community. Hearing about family members who go out of their way to reach out and help others is so encouraging.

Enjoyed Chuck Sr especially with the history. Well done Liked hearing Sara's successes and what she did to help Alaska more than struggles. Chuck sr is a great speaker. Hope to hear more successes to drown out media
