About The Author
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-Exuperys popular childrens book THE LITTLE PRINCE is also read by adults for its allegorical meaning. Saint-Exuperys plane disappeared during a mission in World War II.
