Tara Westover

Overview

Most kids in America go to preschool, elementary school, high school, and then college. But for Tara Westover, things looked drastically different.

She was born into a survivalist family in the mountains of Idaho. Her father was a religious fanatic who had extreme ideas about avoiding the healthcare system and mainstream education. He also was a doomsday prepper. Because of this, the Westover's kept Tara and her siblings at home to help around the farm and stockpile for the impending apocalypse instead of going to school.

Tara eventually went to college and even earned a doctorate from Cambridge University. In Educated: A Memoir, she recounts her long, arduous, and inspiring journey to get an education against all odds.
