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-Exupery's popular children's book THE LITTLE PRINCE is also read by adults for its allegorical meaning.
Saint-Exupery's plane disappeared during a mission in World War II.
