Reading is one of my favourite things to do just before bed. It helps me to unwind from the day and lose myself in another world. I especially enjoy reading fictional books that are based upon facts or real-life so I can learn new things while I am relaxing with a good book.
I really enjoyed this book as it is set against the majestic landscape of early-twentieth-century Africa, the tale reveals the extraordinary adventures of a woman before her time. Beryl Markham was one of the first females to get her B license for flying and she pioneered a new form of safari where she went up in the air to scout for animals and told the safari jeeps where to go to see them. In this book I learnt a lot about Kenyan traditions. Beryl was brought up on an estate with the native Kipsigis tribe and through the story you also see the journey of a young boy in the tribe as he becomes a man.
Have you learned about other cultures from a book? What have you learned?
