From the Publisher
Editors Note 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.
Annotation 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."
