Flight to Arras, Paperback


The French writer and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944), was born in Lyon.

His first two books, "Southern Mail" and Night Flight", are distinguished by a poetic evocation of the romance and discipline of flying.

Later works, including "Wind, Sand and Stars" and "Flight to Arras", stress his humanistic philosophy.

Saint-Exupery's popular children's book "The Little Prince" is also read by adults for its allegorical meaning.

Saint-Exupery's plane disappeared during a mission in World War II.
