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.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery was born in 1900 and became a professional pilot at the age of 26. Beginning with SOUTHERN MAIL (1929), he drew on his flying experiences for a series of books that have become classics of French and world literature. He died in 1944.
