There's no place like home for the holidays . . . which is a good thing when you have a family like Robert Earl Keen's. As Keen tells it in this wry send-up of all those impossibly sweet, “not like our family” Christmas carols, Mom and Dad got drunk at the Christmas party, sister and brother brought their dubious significant others, the relatives' motor home blew out the Christmas lights, and a convenience store supplied all the goodies. Merry Christmas from the Family is the companion book for Robert Earl Keen's popular Christmas tune of the same name. Using authentic Keen family photos, recipes, and craft instructions, it illustrates all the verses of the song, which you can sing along with on the accompanying CD. Whether you're one of Robert Earl's legion of fans, or you've just had enough of Perry, Bing, and the other crooners, Merry Christmas from the Family is what you need to keep the holidays in hilariously skewed perspective.

In her New York Times bestsellers Going Rogue and America by Heart, Sarah Palin revealed the strong Christian faith that has guided her life and family. In Good Tidings and Great Joy she calls for bringing back the freedom to express the Christian values of the season. She asserts the importance of preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas—in public displays, school concerts, pageants, and our expressions to one another other—and laments the over-commercialization and homogenization of Christmas in today's society. Interwoven throughout are personal memories and family traditions, as well as more than a dozen family photos, which illustrate the reasons why the celebration of Jesus Christ's nativity is the centerpiece of her faith. Palin believes it is imperative that we stand up for our beliefs before the element of faith in a glorious and traditional holiday like Christmas is marginalized and ignored. She also encourages readers to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our religious convictions and ignore the politically correct Scrooges seeking to take Christ out of Christmas. Good Tidings and Great Joy is a call to action to openly celebrate the joys of Christianity, and say Merry Christmas to one another.

Rolling Stone hails singer/songwriter Robert Earl Keen as "a writer with a novelist's eye for character and narrative detail comparable to forerunners like John Prine, Guy Clark, and Kris Kristofferson." In The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends, the master storyteller gives us fascinating glimpses into his own story through songs, personal memorabilia, and photographs that span his career from his student days at Texas A&M University to a recent concert at Austin's legendary Stubb's Bar-B-Que. The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends contains the lyrics for twenty-four of Keen's favorite songs, accompanied by one-liners that offer tantalizing hints at the motivations behind the songs ("Corpus Christi Bay" — "True? Yes, unfortunately.") Accompanying the lyrics is a wealth of material from Keen's personal archive—newspaper clippings, concert posters, and programs; journal entries and letters that show him in the process of everything from self-improvement ("Do something really nice for my sister") to raising money to record an album; and photos by and of family, friends, and fans. A very personal, beautifully designed songbook, scrapbook, and photo album, The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends is the essential book for everyone who loves the music of Robert Earl Keen. Also packaged in the book is a CD with printable sheet music for all twenty-four songs, which come from Keen's critically acclaimed albums Walking Distance, Gringo Honeymoon, What I Really Mean, A Bigger Piece of Sky, Farm Fresh Onions, Gravitational Forces, and Picnic.
