In 1937 a two seater aeroplane piloted by Phyl Lewin and her husband Brigadier General A.C. Lewin disappeared over Southern Sudan. This book is the story of Phil's life up to this point. Of her Victorian childhood, travel before World War I, nursing as a VAD in France and then marriage and emigration to Kenya to farm. Widowed and remarried, she flew many times in small aeroplanes between Kenya and England in the 1930s. Diaries of these journeys make exciting reading. The story continues with the rescue from the swamp and how the rest of her life unfolds.
