    It's even better if you read it in French, 
    Interestingly, it was awarded the best fiction award in France for 1939 and the best NON-FICTION award in the U.S. in for 1939.

    St Exupéry? If so, it is a good read but very much of its epoch without much technical detail - more the feeling of flying in the early days. I has a brilliant account of being hit by a pampero that blew nearly as hard to seaward as his aeroplane could fly in the opposite direction.
