Wind, Sand, and Stars previsited

I finished up Wind, Sand, and Stars a couple of months ago but never got around to writing up a post. This story on CNN today is pretty similar to one of the stories in that book, except Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was able to walk out to safety. By the way, Wind, Sand, and Stars come out #1 on a list of adventure books by Outside Online. Others in the top 5 included the Snow Leopard and Desert Solitaire, so pretty solid company.
