Luann Dummer Center for Women (OEC 103)
Hailed as “one of the greatest adventure books of all time” by Newsweek and “the sort of book that makes you think human beings can do anything” by the New York Times, West with the Night explores the life of British-born Beryl Markham, raised in Kenya and trained as a bush pilot at a time when most Africans had never seen a plane. Markham tells all here--her deep, lifelong love of the “soul of Africa”, her torrid love affairs, desperate crash landings-- with wrenching honesty and agile wit.
