Educated by Tara Westover
This bestseller traces the remarkable journey of author Tara Westover from her parents’ remote home in Clifton, Idaho to university and beyond. Brought up under the survivalist ideology, which views hospitals, doctors, the government and public schools with suspicion, Tara was home-schooled. The children were taught to read but their education was haphazard. Educated is a story about uniting a desire for freedom with
a rigid upbringing.
