Tiny Jumper: How Tiny Broadwick Created the Parachute Rip Cord

"The crack of a pistol shattered the silence — Tiny's signal to jump. Her hands trembled as she cut her parachute away from the balloon." Tiny Broadwick, a teeny, uneducated mill girl, had big dreams of soaring above the earth, out of poverty, and above expectations. And when she saw a man parachute down from a hot air balloon at the 1907 North Carolina State Fair, she knew that was her ticket. She jumped from a balloon, and then she became the first woman ever to parachute from an airplane, all while people marveled at her courage.

But then, an accident nearly became a tragedy, and Tiny only saved her own life by cutting herself free. What she needed, she realized, was a way to release her parachute herself: a rip cord! Tiny's clever idea paved the way for pilots to safely escape in-flight emergencies... and she became known as "the most daring parachutist." This thrilling biography shows how Tiny's determination, courage, adventurousness, and joy in doing what she loved lifted her up to stand as tall as a pioneer in flight.
