- A Memoir
- Autor: Tara Westover
- Sprecher: Julia Whelan
- Spieldauer: 12 Std. und 10 Min.
Tara Westover was 17 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. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard. Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. Her quest for knowledge transformed her.
A stirring story

Unique yet universal

A beautifully told story about a rare childhood, coming of age in exceptional circumstances and finding one's self into adulthood. Heartfelt, non-judgemental and insightful - the other brings to light struggles we all face on questions of our place in our families as well as in the world we were born into and the one that we create for ourselves.
