A fascinating biography of Sarah Palin with exclusive new information, written by People magazine assistant editor Lorenzo Benet—who was the last person to interview her prior to her nomination as John McCain’s vice presidential candidate.
Sarah Palin has been the focus of countless news stories on everything from her signature "up-do" to her governorship of Alaska—even her teenage daughter’s pregnancy. Expanding upon the People magazine cover story conducted just before McCain announced his choice for running-mate, Lorenzo Benet offers a never-before-seen look at the life of Sarah Palin—giving readers unprecedented insight into both her personal and professional background. Trailblazer delves into Palin’s relationship with her husband Todd, including details on how they met and their shocking elopement, as well the births of their children, Track, Willow, Piper, Bristol, and the surprise of little Trig. Palin’s career has been a swift if winding journey, leading her and her family in vastly different directions. From her commercial fishing venture to her stint as a local sportscaster for an Anchorage television station, Sarah has worn many hats, eventually leading her to a career in politics. With her beauty, charisma, and political ruthlessness, she quickly skyrocketed from town council member to mayor to governor to vice-presidential nominee. A captivating human interest story, Trailblazer is an intimate portrait of a small-town, self-proclaimed hockey mom who has captured the nation’s attention and rejuvenated the Republican party.
