Description
Information
In 1926 de Saint-Exupery began flying for the pioneering airline Lateco re - later known as Aeropostale - opening up the first mail routes across the Sahara and the Andes.

Wind, Sand And Stars is drawn from this experience. Interweaving encounters with nomadic Arabs and other adventures into a richly textured autobiographical narrative which includes the extraordinary story of his crash in the Libyan Desert in 1936, and his miraculous survival. 'Self-discovery comes when a man measures himself against an obstacle,' writes Saint-Exupery. This book he explores the transcendent perceptions that arise when life is tested to its limits. Both a gripping tale of adventure and a poetic meditation.
