The remarkable story of a young woman who went from horse trainer to pioneering pilot during her life in Africa where she grew up on her father's farm. Autobiographical, but not an autobiography, she relates compelling stories of various key incidents in her life, from surviving a lion's attack to her attempt to be the first to fly solo from England to the United States. She is a philosopher who writes poetically in prose.
