Bright, appealing photographs and a colorful design will draw in readers, while simple, energetic explanations of parachute procedures and equipment offer a comprehensive look at skydiving. Highlighting an intriguing hobby, this volume focuses on people who skydive for fun and features pictures of men and women parachuting. The captioned photos and a labeled illustration clearly show the parts of a parachute. A list of interesting facts is included in the back matter (“During freefall, a skydiver travels about 120 miles [193 kilometers] per hour.”), along with a glossary, suggestions for further reading, a link to publisher-selected Web sites, and an index.
