5.0 out of 5 stars A Splendid Read 13 Aug 2009
By Lilith Amok - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A wonderful look at life in Africa in the first half of the 20th century. The stories, many auto biographical, are exciting and well written. Several stories are especially geared toward admirers
of the horse. Most are great stories for young people and teens.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, but not West with the Night 10 Sep 2012
By Rose M. Griffith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When I read a writer such as Beryl Markham, I like to read the auto-biographical stories the best. Those essays were utterly wonderful. The fictional stories were okay, but on the romantic side. I'm not a fan of romance writing. This wouldn't stop me from reading anything else by Beryl; it even made me want to go back and read West With the Night.
4.0 out of 5 stars After reading Markham's "West in the Night" I was anxious ... 28 July 2014
By Lucy Lu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
After reading Markham's "West in the Night" I was anxious to read more on the life of Beryl Markham. "Splendid Outcaste" is a group of short stories writting by Markham for popular magazines of the day and compiled by Mary Lowell. Some of the stories are historical fiction, some are pure fiction and some are auto bio. All are prefaced by Lowell with "the rest of the story". It was an enjoyable read but not up to "West of the Night".
5.0 out of 5 stars why I loved the "Splendid Outcast" 10 Jan 2014
By Ingrid Larnis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Beryl Markham wasn't just an over the top woman...she was an expert thoroughbred trainer, an accomplished pilot,
and a fantastic writer! I share her stories with many friends. So many have never heard of her. She was amazing
especially in her time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting book 11 Oct 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I truly loved reading the many short stories about and by Beryl. It amazes me that more people haven't heard of her remarkable accomplishments. She is a REAL HERO in my book.
