  • "West with the Night is the story of Beryl Markham--aviator, racehorse trainer, beauty--and her life in the Kenya of the 1920s and '30s."
  • "Autobiografisch verslag van een aantal perioden uit het leven van een jonge Engelse vrouw die in Kenia renpaarden fokte en als eerste vrouw in haar eentje over de Atlantische Oceaan vloog."
  • "I knew Beryl fairly well in Africa and never would have suspected that she could and would put pen to paper except to write in her flyer's log book. She has written so well and marvelously well, that I was completely ashamed of myself as a writer."@en
  • "Memoirs of an English woman who was raised in East Africa and became a pilot in the 1930s. In 1936 she became the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west. She lived in America for years until she returned to Kenya in 1948."

  • "Beryl Markham’s classic, engrossing memoir—a triumph of the pioneer spirit and an adventure-charged chronicle of a life lived to the fullest Beryl Markham’s life was a true epic, complete with shattered societal expectations, torrid love affairs, and desperate crash landings. A rebel from a young age, the British-born Markham was raised in Kenya’s unforgiving farmlands. She learned to be a bush pilot at a time when most Africans had never seen a plane. In 1936, she accepted the ultimate challenge: to fly solo across the Atlantic. Her successes and her failures—and her deep, lifelong love of the “soul of Africa”—are all chronicled here with wrenching honesty and agile wit. Hailed by National Geographic as one of the greatest adventure books of all time, West with the Night is the sweeping account of a fearless and dedicated woman."
