Into The Night, Beryl Markham

August 3, 1986 Pioneer pilot and horse trainer Beryl Markham died at the age of 84. Markham’s aviation memoir West With The Night is so inspiring and beautifully written that some unreasonable critics claimed it must have been written by a more experienced male writer. Ernest Hemingway said “She has written so well, and marvellously well, that I was completely ashamed of myself as a writer.”
