||In this moving autobiography, Beryl Markham describes growing up in East Africa with her horse-breeder father, who taught her to care for and train the animals for racing. In her 20s, Markham discovered flying, and worked as an airborne deliverer of supplies and mail. In 1936, she became the first woman to make a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean. Ernest Hemingway called the memoir "a bloody wonderful book." With photographs.
