One of the miracles of the airplane is that it plunges a man directly into the heart of mystery…A needle trembles on your manometer, and this green clump below you becomes a universe.

Distinguished as a National Geographic Top Ten Adventure Book of All Time, this effusive, poetic memoir recounts Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's unparalleled experiences as a French aviator.
