Aviator Lincoln Beachey broke countless records: he looped-the-loop, flew upside down and in corkscrews, and was the first to pull his aircraft out of what was a typically fatal tailspin. As Beachey and other aviators took to the skies in death-defying acts in the early twentieth century, these innovative daredevils not only wowed crowds, but also redefined the frontiers of powered flight. HIGHER, STEEPER, FASTER takes readers inside the world of the brave men and women who popularized flying through their deadly stunts and paved the way for modern aviation.
