Book Summary

Beryl Markham made history in 1936 as the first person ever to fly the Atlantic solo from England to North America.  Her 1942 memoir, West with the Night, was republished in 1983 to worldwide literary acclaim.  This compelling biography explores Markham's public and private lives:  her independent childhood in Kenya, her achievement as Africa's first female bush pilot and thoroughbred trainer, and her turbulent love affairs with Prince Henry, Bror Blixen, Denys Finch-Hatton, and Leopold Stokowski.  Straight on Til Morning is the captivating story of a woman unbound by convention or fear.
