Wind, Sand and Stars -- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - Paperback
A National Geographic Top Ten Adventure Book of All Time
Recipient of the Grand Prix of the Académie Française, Wind, Sand and Stars captures the grandeur, danger, and isolation of flight. Its exciting account of air adventure, combined with lyrical prose and the spirit of a philosopher, makes it one of the most popular works ever written about flying.
Translated by Lewis Galantière.
There are certain rare individuals...who by the mere fact of their existence put an edge on life, their ceaseless astonishment before its possibilities awakening our own latent sense of renewel and expectation. No one ever stood out more conspicuously in this respect than the French aviator and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.--The New York Times Book Review
