This narrator/author combination rather reminded me of a professor I had in college. He was cursed with a rather plain voice, but once you got past that and listened to what he was saying, it was bitingly funny and terribly insightful. This book is much the same.
I listen while commuting, and I frequently encounter a narrator/author combination that I'll have to turn off after about 30 minutes so that I don't fall asleep while driving. This book is emphatically not one of those. The memoir is beautifully written and wonderfully told; it is infused with magnificent landscapes, dear friends, captivating adventures, and delightful humor. In short, it is the best audio book I've listened to this year.

I Read this wonderful book
Hello I just wanted to put in my 2cents on this great book. I did not listen to it, I read it aloud to my family on a long trip. There were a few paragraphs I skipped over for the benefit of my sensitive 10 year old.
This is a first hand account of the early days of flying in Africa, told by a strong woman, but in the most beautiful lyrical style. It would be great for everyone interested in flying or Africa, but especially for young women.
