Description

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.

    By Polarity Reversal
    This memoir of an early air-mail pilot is mostly a quasi-poetic, often mystical meditation on life. Outside magazine once declared it to be the "best adventure book" of all time. But it's not. It's not even close. Try Krakauer or Junger instead. (BTW, Saint-Exupéry later went on to write The Little Prince.)
