This memoir by the formerly famous, pioneering aviatrix/horse trainer/celebrated beauty has rarely received the recognition it deserves. The teeming plains and white hunters of British East Africa, the barely-tested skies come alive again in these masterfully crafted episodes from a life of uncompromising freedom: funny, thrilling and moving. One of my 'desert island' books.
The author describes growing up in an Africa that no longer exists, training and breeding race horses, flying mail to Sudan, and being the first woman to fly the Atlantic from east to west.
