St Exupery is a wonderful, poet-in-prose author, one of a kind. This book gives great insight on what it was like to work for the airline mail courier L’Aeropostale in the late 1920s, as St Exupery did himself, including flying at night to compete with mail services by ship and train. A very chilling tale about bravery and humanity. Beautiful descriptions of flying at night, with no surrounding lights of any kind.
