Beryl Markham moved to Kenya with her father at the age of four and stayed until her death.

Markham achieved notoriety and success as a horse trainer, and became the first woman in Kenya to receive a commercial pilot's licence. Her adventures and courageous career as a bush pilot are recounted in vivid detail here.
