KIRKUS REVIEW

Biography that is refreshing, colorful and unexpected. There is excellent and exciting detail of childhood as daughter of an Englishman who farmed and raised horses in Africa; there is a picture of African friends and neighbors; there is her decision to train race horses -- and then to take up flying, which led to adventure and new friends and finally to the chance to fly the Atlantic.
