Tara Westover is an American author living in the UK. Born in Idaho to a father opposed to public education, she never attended school.
She spent her days working in her father's junkyard or stewing herbs for her mother, a self-taught herbalist and midwife.
She was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom, and after that first taste, she pursued learning for a decade.
She graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University in 2008 and was subsequently awarded a Gates Cambridge Scholarship.
She earned an MPhil from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2009, and in 2010 was a visiting fellow at Harvard University. She returned to Cambridge, where she was awarded a PhD in history in 2014.
