SUMMARY

From the author of the critically acclaimedIn the Wilderness, comes a riveting new narrative of self-discovery and personal triumph.Hungry for the Worldis 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 fathera logger and fervent adherent to the Pentecostal Christian faithshe 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 Worldis a classic story of the search for knowledge and its consequences, both dire and beautiful.Barnes, Kim is the author of 'Hungry for the World A Memoir', published 2001 under ISBN 9780385720441 and ISBN 0385720440.
