Bookshelf ABC - W

White Nights takes place in the Shetland Islands of Scotland. As my people are from the Scottish Highlands, I love to read books set in Scotland. And since I visited Shetland about a year ago for the annual Viking festival, I feel a kinship with the place. Nonetheless, I have not read this book. My mother just gave it to me on Sunday, and I've added it to my to-read stack on my bedside table.

Wow me with another W book.

War of the World by H.G. Wells. An oldie but goodie.

I haven't heard of this one.

Watership Down. Supposedly a simple tale of rabbits searching for a new home, but it's got incredible depth to it.

My book is an autobiography by Bertl Markham (1902-1986) West With the Night. Beryl was born in Enland and her father moved the family to Kenya, East Africa when she was five. Her stories about growing up on a ranch in Africa are wonderful. She became a bush pilot and was the first woman to fly solo from east to west across the Atlantic. She was also the first female licensed race horse trainer in Kenia. It has been quite a few years since I read this book and now that I have it out I think I will read it again.
