5.0 out of 5 stars West with the Night, 20 Jun 2009
This review is from: West with the Night (Paperback)
Hemingways review says it all. Briefly, it's the most under-rated historical review of life and customs, as well as flying, in Africa over a very formative period. That this woman flew very basic aircraft with virtually non-existant navigational aids, most often solo over huge stretches of totally inhospitable terrain, is mind boggling in itself.
Beryl Markham has created not so much an autobiography but both a literary and philosophical masterpiece. Each page actually deserves an individual review.
I,ve already lent my copy out, so I'm buying another one!
