Just in time for Christmas, another Mike Huckabee collection

Mike Huckabee, the Florida resident who once passed through Arkansas, has a new volume of musings out. It's in the form of letters to his grandchildren. Title: "Dear Chandler, Dear Scarlett: A grandfather's thoughts on faith, family and the things that matter." Not having been supplied a review copy, I can't say if it includes any warnings about knives and forks. It doesn't seem to be attempting to capitalize off tragedy, as an earlier Huckabee effort did.

Huckabee has cover blurbs from James Robison, Josh Turner, Joan Lunden, Bob Barker, Neil Sedaka, and Robert Duvall.

Current book tour stops don't include Arkansas. Book lists at $24.95, but Amazon has it for $13.66.

The publication includes more stories from Huckabee's Lava soap-rough childhood in Hope, Ark. From Amazon:

'Dear Chandler, Dear Scarlett' touches on the time­less topics of faith, love, family, overcoming adversity, and staying true to your values in the face of failure and temptation. For instance, Huckabee tells how being forced to pick up pecans from the trees in his yard taught him the value of hard work. (“We were told that if we wanted to eat that night and sleep in a bed instead of in the yard, we’d pick up the pecans.”)
