Recipient of the Grand Prix of the Academie Francaise, "Wind, Sand and Stars" is unsurprassed in capturing the grandeur, danger, and isolation of flight. Its exciting account of air adventure - through the treacherous passes of the Pyrenees, above the Sahara, along the snowy ramparts of the Andes - combined with lyrical prose and the soaring spirit of a philosopher, make this book one of the most popular works ever written about flying.
