Summary History of aerial crop dusting, with descriptions and photographs of Huff Daland Dusters and Delta's crop dusting activities.

"Agricultural aviation is an indispensible industry within the greater framework of modern farming. How did it come to be? Author and pilot Mabry Anderson takes us barnstorming to see the exciting birth of 'crop dusting' and the planes, people places and techniques which have made possible the world of agricultural aviation as we now know it. In this absorbing collection of facts, anecdotes and rare photos, we get a low-flying look at the entrepreneurial spirit, professional skill and love of aviation which have marked the development of flying "low and slow".
