Great book on American conservative values and their clash with the present liberal agenda. Rekindles the hope of what can be if another leader in the likeness of Ronald Reagan can reclaim the White House. ( )

I enjoyed this book which was more like an essay on America than an autobiography. ( I read a biography last February, but wish I had read "Going Rogue," her autobiography instead.) Since I bought this at the Dollar Tree I didn't feel I had much to lose. It certainly made up for all the duds I got there. I pretty much agreed with everything she had to say. ( )

I must admit, I didn't finish this book. Not that I don't like Sarah Palin. Not that this isn't a thoughtful book, or even that is not well written. It isn't even that it is uninspiring. I just felt this book is better geared towards the new conservative or those unfamiliar with Palin's political philosophy. ( )

Palin's prose is fluid, quite unlike the fractured syntax common at her unscripted public appearances, a total reboot that suggests an excellent ghostwriter.

Product Description

This is my America, from my heart, and by my heart. I give it now to my children and grandchildren, and to yours, so they will always know what it was like in America when people were free.

Since the publication of her bestselling memoir, Going Rogue, in 2009, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has traveled the country extensively. She has visited cities and towns in almost every state, dropped in on military bases, given talks and speeches to small groups and at massive rallies. Throughout her travels, she has been privileged to meet thousands of Americans—ordinary men and women who have shared with her their hopes and dreams, their love of country, and their fears about what lies ahead. Governor Palin, inspired by these encounters, celebrates in her new book the enduring strengths and virtues that have made this country a beacon of liberty and hope for the rest of the world.

America by Heart is a highly personal testament to her deep love of country, her strong roots in faith, and her profound appreciation of family. Ranging widely over American history, culture, and current affairs, Governor Palin reflects on the key values that have been such an essential part of her own life and that continue to inform her vision of America’s future. The book also includes brief readings from classic and contemporary texts that have moved and inspired her, as well as portraits of Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires.

Informed by Palin’s own principles and deepest feelings, graced with intimate memories, this remarkable book gives us a close-up view of an extraordinary woman who is not afraid to speak out and defend the American values in which she so deeply believes.
