    A pretty good story to tell. The American Dream is alive and well in the Hagar family.

    Bobbi Hagar Harrell, the sister of legendary rocker Sammy Hagar (CHICKENFOOT, VAN HALEN, MONTROSE), has written a book called "Blinds, Patches, And Twine", which provides insight into the turbulence and triumph that the family experienced in Fontana, California. The 188-page book is published by Strategic Book Publishing.

    "My book is about growing up in Fontana my dad's failures and my mother's ability to help us survive," Harrell tells FontanaHeraldNews.com.

    Official book description: "'Blinds, Patches, And Twine' is one family's road map through the hardships and struggles present in three generations of living. Beginning with the final tale in 1972 and looking back at where it all started, this true story shows the disappointments, fear, laughter, anger and, most importantly, the love shared by strong family ties. This story of survival and wits tells about a powerful man who never fully achieved what the talent and passion he'd been gifted with would have indicated. That tenacity and passion spawned a family of four and led one son, Sammy, the youngest, to the fame and fortune his father had always sought. Ultimately, Sammy Hagar carried his dream to the pinnacle of success. Primarily, 'Blinds' is a story of resolution, compromise and forgiveness that carries readers through the years of a family's love and courage as they strive to deal with the debilitating alcohol addiction of a strong, vital character. It introduces the family through events as their personalities are shaped and developed by these circumstances. One gets the feeling that there is something left behind in all of us as we deal with 'who' we are, while living with 'where' we are."

    Bobby Hagar Harrell helps run her family business in Riverside, California. She is the mother of three, grandmother of nine and great-grandmother of four.

    "I said all of my life that my dad's failure was the greatest tool I had in learning and understanding how to live," she said. "I'm so grateful for this experience and my mother's courage to help us through without ever planting one seed of hate or discontent."

    Sammy gave this quote about "Blinds, Patches, And Twine": "Anyone who grew up or still lives in Fontana should read this book. It's about our family life growing up in Fontana and is the prelude to my book, 'Red', which only touched on it in one chapter."
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack. -- Gen. George S. Patton

    Just reading it now, stylistically not the most appealing writing style, but some very interesting stuff.
