About this title


Parachutists are a breed apart, worthy of the title Sky People," for few experience the freedom and the whims and the very substance of the air as they do. This is the story of the Pioneers who showed the way; 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 jump for sheer joy. It is a story that relates the excitement, the humor, the triumph, and the tragedy that have accompanied parachuting through the years.
