I, like many, was first introduced to St. Exupery by "The Little Prince"; however, I went on to explore his other books (Wind, Sand and Stars) and fell in love with his poetic style of writing, his passion for flight, and his vivid descriptions of the Sahara. His life ended all too soon, insisting on flying in the War, even when he was turned down several times for his age. He died flying at the age of 44. His writing lives on, and if you read just the first page, you will know that this is one of the most talented and excellent writers you will ever read.

My husband loves any of the books by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. This particular book is out of print and after searching several major book stores, Amazon had a new one at a reasonable price of $19.95. My husband loves that I found it. Have seen collectors editions as high as $800.00!

More soaring and gliding from aviation's greatest penseur. Why we are all here, how our world looks from the sky and how things change as we mature are all examined in the lovely loquacious style that is St.Ex. Another classic.
