WEST WITH THE NIGHT - Beryl Markham, 1942



You have to admire these women: when the world of flight was in its infancy, they set off on incredible voyages. And I am scared to fly from A to B without holding Dave’s hand and putting myself in my ‘happy place’.  We all know of Amy and Amelia but Beryl was, in her time, right up there with them.  She lived in Kenya and explored the whole of East Africa from the air. She was friends with Denys Finch Hatton and Karen Blixen and this is the tale of that time and that place from her point of view.
