[EAN: 9781853101144], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Airlife, United Kingdom], Jacket, " ‘Life changed after that jump Id suddenly stepped to the highest level of daring, a level above even that which airplane pilots could attain.’ Thus wrote Charles Lindbergh, one of the greatest aviators of all time, after his first premeditated parachute jump. Parachutists are indeed a breed apart, worthy of Lindbergh’s admiration, 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 their story. It 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 humour, the triumph, and the tragedy that have accompanied parachuting down the years. It is a story that vividly conveys through anecdote, quotation and pictures the very sensations of parachuting in all its guises. Peter Hearn has brought together the fruits of extensive research, the experience of 30 years as a practising parachutist, and the story-telling ability of an established author to produce a fascinating book. The Sky People is a book that can he read, understood and enjoyed by those who know nothing or little of parachuting and that will also appeal to the Sky People themselves as a true and revealing account of their own experiences and heritage." Hardback with dustjacket published in 1990. Contains 160 pages, measures 160mm x 240mm. Condition: ex library book, both book/jacket in a very good presentable condition.
