Summary (From the publisher):

In his first novel, Saint-Exupery pays homage to "those elemental divinities--night, day, mountain, sea and storm," turning an account of a routine mail flight from France to North Africa into an epic rendering of the pioneer days of commercial aviation. Southern Mail is also a poignant reminiscence of a tragic affair, in which the uncertainties of love and flight enhance the mystery of one another.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944), best known as the author of The Little Prince, was also a pioneer aviator. In 1944 he flew his plane over the Mediterranean on a World War II mission from which he never returned.
