Day 18: The Little Prince

Antoine de Saint-ExupéryIn 1928 Antoine de Saint Exupéry became the director of the remote Cap Juby airfield in Rio de Oro, Sahara (He had joined the French Air Force, flying reconnaissance missions until France’s armistice with Germany in 1940). His house was a wooden shack and he slept on a thin straw mattress. In this isolation Saint-Exupéry learned to love the desert, and used its harsh beauty as the background for The Little Prince.

Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s literary works has been translated into over 250 languages and dialects. His posthumous stature further propelled and allowed him to achieve national hero status in France.
