In this true story of adventure and survival, pilot-turned-author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry recounts his plane crash in a barren African desert. Food and water were scarce, days were long under the blistering sun, and death was imminent. And yet, somehow, he survives. A must-have vintage book for any explorer, our first edition copy of Wind, Sand and Stars — published in 1939 by Reynal & Hitchcock — will take you on the ultimate adventure...and perhaps even inspire you to plan one of your own.
