Straight on Till Morning: The Life of Beryl Markham Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born in England and raised in Kenya, Beryl Markham was a notorious beauty. She trained race horses and had scandalous affairs, but she is most remembered for being a pioneering aviatrix. She became the first woman to cross the Atlantic Ocean and the first person to make it from London to New York nonstop. In Mary S. Lovell's definitive biography, Beryl takes on new life--vividly portrayed by a master biographer whose knowledge of her subject is unparalleled.

Book News Annotation:

Lovell, author of The Sisters and The Churchills, presents this biography of Beryl Markham. Beryl Markham was a record breaking aviatrix, the first woman to fly across the Atlantic from east to west, and the first person in history to fly non-stop from London to New York. Markham's personal life was just as interesting as her professional life, both of which are covered in this well-researched and expertly written biography. This book, a reprint from 1987, appeals to the general reader as well as those with an interest in aviation history. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
