  • "Beryl Markham's classic, engrossing memoir-a triumph of the pioneer spirit and an adventure-charged chronicle of a life lived to the fullestBeryl 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."@en

  • "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."
  • "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."
