West with the Night
This memoir is about a woman who defies all expectations of how a woman should live and what a single person can achieve. She grew up in East Africa among animals such as zebras, horses, baboons, lions, leopards, and gazelles. Her life consisted of adventuring, racehorse training, and aviation. She even became the first person to fly nonstop from Europe to America.
