Petroleum News organization publishes book about Sarah Palin

PNA Publishing, an affiliate of Anchorage-based Petroleum News, said Oct. 2 it is publishing a new book, “Sarah takes on Big Oil,” that chronicles the compelling story of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s stormy relationship with Alaska’s three major oil producers before she ascended to the national stage as the Republican vice presidential candidate.

In 216 pages, including an eight-page, four-color photo section, the book seeks to answer the question of how Palin has met the challenge of balancing the interests of the people of Alaska against those of the state’s oil industry. It also details Palin’s concrete successes and failures in dealing with the industry that is the lifeblood of the area’s economy.

Authors Kay Cashman and Kristen Nelson are top editors at the independent oil and gas weekly. Cashman and Nelson, both veteran business journalists, have reported on Alaska’s oil and gas industry for a quarter of a century and throughout Palin’s phenomenal rise to power.

They promise to deliver a three-dimensional portrait of the Palin administration and the unusual circumstances that have bracketed her leadership.

The book strives to offer a perspective based on knowledge rarely available to general news reporters. As a result, “Sarah takes on Big Oil” is a good read, full of lively personalities and verifiable facts - facts that back up the compelling story of Alaska’s popular governor, according to PNA spokesman Steven Sutherlin.

Preorders for the Oct. 12 hardcover release of the book, at $21.95 each, will be shipped first, Sutherlin said. “Sarah takes on Big Oil” will be on retailers’ shelves in mid-October, he said.
