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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, but not West with the Night 10 Sept. 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.
3.0 out of 5 stars I love Beryl Markham's writing 6 Aug. 2015
By Robin Cottrell - Published on Amazon.com

I love Beryl Markham's writing. She's a brilliant story-teller, and as she mostly wrote from personal experience, I love it all the more.
I'm a bit disappointed in this anthology however, as the tone of her tales is more dark and heartrending. As a matter of fact, where I usually can't put her work down, this particular book hasn't been finished yet. I find I have to steel myself somewhat.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beryl Markham 4 Oct. 2016

Beryl Markham left an indelible imprint on this world and all that she came into contact with in her lifetime. It must have been a wonderful experience to know her personally. I feel inadequate in trying to express myself about such a marvelous lady.
