Full description for West with the Night
Originally published in 1942 and then reissued in 1983, this is the unabridged best-selling autobiography of the first woman to fly the Atlantic solo from east to west. But it is much more than a story of aviation, revealing a poet's feeling for the land, an adventurer's engagement with life, and a philosopher's insights into the human condition. Julie Harris's evocative reading evokes the sights, sounds, and feelings of a remarkable life lived far outside the mainstream.
