The Splendid Outcast – The African Stories of Beryl Markham –

Beryl Markham, compiled and introduced by Mary S. Lovell

“Beryl Markham’s African Stories, never before collected, were written in the 1940x, after her classic memoir West With the Night – now an international bestseller.

Some of the stories are autobiographical, covering episodes that were not contained in that remarkable work; some are fictional – and all are richly romantic.

Markham writes about the thing she knows – racehorses, flying, the Masai, even a beautiful young aviatrix – and sets her stories in the glorious African settings which she loved so well and evoked with such timeless mastery. She is, with Karen Blixen and Elspeth Huxley, one of the great chroniclers of life in colonial Kenya between the wars.”
