I've read all his books. Some, twice. I'm getting Wind Sand and Stars confused with Night Flight. But in one or the other, there were fascinating recounts of being caught offshore with a headwind against which he made NO distance across the ground (already mentioned here) and another being stranded on a butte, somehow, and powering over a cliff to acheive flying speed without any runway. I think he was a splendid writer.
