Description

Three award-winning works of adventure, survival, and the early days of aviation from the celebrated author of The Little Prince, collected in one volume.

Ranging from the northern skies of France to the South American Andes, this volume includes two memoirs and a novel, each informed by the lauded pilot and poet's experiences as a pioneering aviator during World War II.

Wind, Sand and Stars
Recounting his early days flying airmail routes across the African Sahara, Saint-Exupéry explores the spiritual, philosophical, and physical wonders of navigating the passes of the Pyrenees, the peaks of the Andes, and the wasteland of the Libyan desert. This memoir, a National Book Award winner that was voted a National Geographic Top Ten Adventure Book of All Time, is "a beautiful book, a brave book, and a book that should be read against the confusion of this world" (The New York Times).

Night Flight
Overseeing night-mail flights in Buenos Aires, Riviere is a believer in remaining faithful to the mission and has trained his pilots to stave off the fear of death. But when he discovers that one of his planes is lost in a storm after flying out of Patagonia, both his authority and his beliefs will be challenged, in a novel that won France's Prix Femina Award and was made into a classic film.

Flight to Arras
Saint-Exupéry's memoir of a harrowing reconnaissance mission during the Battle of France in 1940 -- as one of only a handful of pilots who continued to fight in solidarity against the inevitable German invasion -- was a recipient of the Grand Prix Littéraire de l'Aéro-Club de France.

"Saint-Exupéry... blends adventure with reflection in a way few writers have." -- Richard Bach

Translated by Lewis Galantière and Stuart Gilbert
