* ERNEST HEMINGWAY wrote to a friend: 'She can write rings around all of us . . . I wish you would get it and read it because it is really a bloody wonderful book'
* introduction by MARTHA GELLHORNFrom the Back Cover:
Beryl Markham was one of the most extraordinary women of the twentieth century: a pioneering aviator who became the first person to fly solo from England to America; the first woman to obtain a horse-trainer's licence; a beautiful seductress whose conquests included Prince Henry, who was third in line to the throne.
'West with the Night is the sort of book that makes you think human beings can do anything . . . When she was a mere child, she was clawed by a lion. This should have been enough to make anybody timid for life, but not Beryl . . . A jewel of taut writing and thrilling reading' New York Times
