Fans of Educated by Tara Westover are sure to fall for this riveting narrative of self-discovery and personal triumph. From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated memoir, In the Wilderness, hereis the story of how an intelligent and passionate young woman, yearning for an understanding of the world beyond her insular family life, found her way.
On the day of her 1976 high school graduation in Lewiston, Idaho, Kim Barnes decided she could no longer abide the patriarchal domination of family and church. After a disagreement with her father-a logger and fervent adherent to the Pentecostal Christian faith-she gathered her few belongings and struck out on her own. She had no skills and no funds, but she had the courage and psychological sturdiness to make her way, and to eventually survive the influence of a man whose dominance was of a different and more menacing sort. Hungry for the World is a classic story of the search for knowledge and its consequences, both dire and beautiful.
