From Wikipedia:

Joseph Peyré (13 March 1892 in Aydie (Pyrénées-Atlantiques) – 26 December 1968 in Cannes) was a French writer.


He studied at Pau, Pyrénées-Atlantiques, at the Lycee Louis-Barthou, then Paris and Bordeaux (Doctor of Laws and Bachelor of Philosophy), he went into journalism.


Three themes animate the work of the 'novelist of loneliness and the exaltation of man':

  • The desert and travels through the sand, in his Sahara cycle, in particular White Squadron (Renaissance 1931), The Leader in the Star Silver (Carthage 1934), The Legend of goumier Said;

  • Spain, seen in Blood and Enlightenment (Prix Goncourt 1935) or Guadalquivir;

  • The mountain, in the Matterhorn (1939) and Mount Everest (1942).
