Recipient of the Grand Prix of the Académie Française, Wind, Sand and Stars is unsurpassed in capturing the grandeur, danger, and isolation of flight. Its exciting account of air adventure—through the treacherous passes of the Pyrenees, above the Sahara, along the snowy ramparts of the Andes—combined with the lyrical prose and soaring spirit of a philosopher, make this book one of the most popular works ever written about flying.

While flying for his air squadron, Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944) disappeared over the Mediterranean a year after writing his most famous book, The Little Prince. He was also the author of Night Flight and Wartime Writings.
