my hero: beryl markham

She was racing horses, she knew how to fly a plane, she was the odd girl out, she had the courage to be different, she wrote a book (or did someone else?). All these things did not make life easy for her. 

Beryl Markham lived in Kenya. In later years she lived near the racecourse at Ngong, Nairobi.

Now she has been declared a hero by Paula McLain.
