Into the Night

Beryl Markham was a British born aviator who, in 1936, became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic from east to west non-stop in a single engined wooden monoplane. Her story was immortalised in the book “West with the Night”, and this song I wrote was inspired by that amazing story

    1. She’s not at all well known, I only readvher book by accident. I was awestruck by the thought of her flying off into the night in her little pkane to cross the mighty ocean, scary, and it inspired the music. Im glad you like it Lu Ann 😃

  1. I read West Into the Night many years ago and had completely forgotten about it. Thanks for the memory nudge and for the music . . . you’ve honored the adventurous feminine spirit to be sure!

    1. I read the book years and years ago, its funny how some things stay with you and get expressed a long time later. I cant imagine having that much courage, such a lonely undertaking at that time
