Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Readers of Beryl Markham's lyrical autobiography, WEST WITH THE NIGHT, will enjoy THE SPLENDID OUTCAST, a collection of her short stories, originally published in magazines.

The stories reflect her interests; horses, aviation, Africa. Several spring from real events--bidding at a horse auction, flying through a violent storm, a lion's attack. Others are romances and adventures, typical of the war years when they were written. All are set against the backdrop of an Africa with which she was on intimate terms.

"Full of her offbeat adventures in Africa, Markham emerges from them as a woman of finely tuned observation, as well as courage, cunning and vulnerability." (The New York Times)
