This is the fascinating story of the Pioneers who showed the way in the history of parachuting; of the Show-Jumpers who tied the 'dicing-with-death' label so tightly to the parachute; of the 'Caterpillars' who have leapt for life from stricken aircraft and of the test jumpers who made it possible for them to do so; of the Paratroopers who used the parachute to carry them to battle; and of the Sky Divers who jumped for sheer joy. Included is some wonderful photography in this book.
