In 2006, an angel-faced but tough forty-two-year-old former small-town mayor named Sarah Palin became a long-shot candidate for Alaska governor demanding a higher ethical standard in state government. The timing of her reform message and a widening scandal produced a tornado that reshaped the political landscape. Surprising everyone, Palin thumped by wide margins both a sitting governor in the Republican primary election and a former governor in the general election to become Alaska's first female chief executive and its youngest ever. Through the campaign, and early in Palin's first term, the energetic and attractive mother of five achieved near-heroine status in her state. At one point, the new governor's approval rating reached 90 percent, prompting the Fox News Network to describe her as "a Politician with eye-popping integrity" and some national GOP leaders to tout her as a prototype of the "new Republican."

From the Publisher:

Sarah Palin made history as the first woman ever to serve on a Republican presidential ticket. The nation is clamoring for information about Sarah. Who is she? How did she rise to her current prominence?

Only one book has the answer: SARAH: How a Hockey Mom Turned Alaska's Political Establishment Upside Down (EAN 9780980082562)

In Sarah, we learn that she is a former Wasilla High School basketball star, ex-beauty queen, and one-time journalist who wears a killer smile, designer glasses, and high heels. She rides in a 2,000-very-cold-mile snow machine race every year called the Iron Dog. She has filled more than a few freezers with moose that she shot herself, and she prefers caribou steaks to beef tenderloins.

Her husband is part Alaska Native, a roughneck on the North Slope, and the family fishes commercially each year on Bristol Bay. Last, but not least--as her adversaries learned painfully--she has the political instincts of a seasoned pro and an independent streak a mile long.

"Sarah Palin is a politician of eye-popping integrity."
--Fox News Network

"Wildly Popular, she's more than just a pretty face."
--Alaska magazine

"There's an undeniable national buzz surrounding the first-term governor, seen by many Republicans as a fresh, new face to represent the party's future."
--Chicago Tribune
