요약
"Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. 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." In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard. 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 one of Tara's older brothers became violent. As a way out, Tara began to educate herself, learning enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University. Her quest for knowledge would transform her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far, if there was still a way home. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Tara Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes, and the will to change it."--Provided by publisher.

타라 웨스트오버(지은이)

1986년 미국 아이다호에서 7남매 중 막내딸로 태어났다. 공교육을 거부하는 아버지로 인해 16년간 학교에 다니지 못했다. 기초 교육 과정을 모두 건너뛴 채로 대입자격시험(ACT)을 치렀고, 17세에 대학에 합격하면서 기적과 같은 배움의 여정을 시작했다. 2008년 최우수 학부생상을 받으며 브리검 영 대학교를 졸업했고, 게이츠 케임브리지 장학금 수상자로 지정되어 2009년 케임브리지 대학교 트리니티 칼리지에서 석사 학위를 받았다. 2010년 하버드 대학교에서 방문 연구원을 지냈고, 케임브리지 대학교로 돌아온 뒤 2014년에 역사학으로 박사 학위를 받았다. 2019년 『타임』이 선정한 <세계에서 가장 영향력 있는 인물 100인>에 뽑혔다.
