Description

The dramatic true story of a remarkable woman growing up in Africa in the 1920s: the excitement of big game hunting and horse training, and the first solo flight across the Atlantic from east to west. It's named one of the ten greatest adventure books of all time, as selected by a panel assembled by National Geographic Adventure.


About the Author

Beryl Markham (1902–1986), born in England, was taken by her father to East Africa in 1906. She spent her childhood playing with native Maruni children and apprenticing with her father as a trainer and breeder of racehorses. In the 1930s, she became an African bush pilot, and in September 1936, became the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west.
