Witness the danger, excitement, adventures of a pioneer aviator interspersed with his philosophy of life as he recounts his experiences with the French Air Post Service in the early years of the twentieth century.
A 1920's airplane pilot writes of his adventures delivering mail across the world. He also writes of his near-death survival in the Sahara desert.
Antoine de Saint-Exupiery descriptive writing tells such poignant detail: deep blue sky turning into a treacherous storm; cotton clouds and the peaks of the Andes, a near death experience in his plane; and then of the revolution in Spain. His philosophy makes the reader contemplate his written word. An excellent read.
"While flying for his air squadron, Antoine De Saint-Exupery (1900-1944) disappeared over the Mediterranean a year after writing his most famous book, "The Little Prince." He was also the author of "Night Flight" and "Wartime Writings."
