SARAH PALIN: A BIOGRAPHY offers a candid yet unbiased look at the charismatic politician who became the first female nominee on a Republican national presidential ticket. Covering her early childhood, her high school and college years, her ascendancy from the two-term mayor of Wasilla to the Alaskan governorship, the 2008 McCain/Palin campaign, and her position as potential 2012 Republican party standard bearer, SARAH PALIN: A BIOGRAPHY looks at the crucial life experiences that brought Governor Palin to the forefront of American politics. Going beyond the caricatures and politically motivated portraits, it offers a compelling story of remarkable achievement over numerous obstacles, of a modern frontier woman whose politics reflect the unmistakable influences of family, faith, and hard work.
