Educated: A Memoir

#ad
#ad
Random House #ad - Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Her father distrusted the medical establishment, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her “head-for-the-hills” bag.

Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. She taught herself enough mathematics, grammar, and science to take the ACT and was admitted to Brigham Young University. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one’s life through new eyes, and the will to change it.

Educated: A Memoir #ad - Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when an older brother became violent. Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention.

When another brother got himself into college and came back with news of the world beyond the mountain, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged metal in her father’s junkyard. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty, and of the grief that comes from severing one’s closest ties.
