In 1998, Jennifer Murray - 60-year-old businesswoman, artist, housewife and mother of three - became the first woman to pilot a helicopter around the world in a record-breaking solo flight. Escorted all the while by a friend in a microlight craft, she single-handedly chartered the helicopter across the globe. This book documents Jennifer's epic journey. Taken from the audio diaries which she kept at the end of each exhausting day, the book tells of the planning and endless bureaucracy and of the tempers and tiredness. Her extraordinary adventure took her from Brooklands, England to Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, the United States and Canada, all of which are captured here in astonishing detail. It tells of her battles for financial support and the heavy resistance she faced in China and Pakistan.
