Quick Overview

.
In Australia's remote outback, on the dazzling saltpan of Lake Eyre, Donald Campbell set out to drive his Bluebird car at over 400 miles an hour, faster than any man in history. Things went wrong from the start: unseasonal rains, a sodden lake bed in which every high-speed run slewed dangerously deep ruts, money running short, and even an Aboriginal curse. But with enormous courage, as death shimmered on the horizon ahead of him, the lonely and isolated Campbell tried to hold his nerve until he broke the record. 272pp First published in 1965, this edition 2002
