Book Description

8 Sep 1988
In the 1930s Sir Malcolm Campbell, a flamboyant, buccaneering romantic broke all land and speed records. In the 1950s and 60s his son Donald did the same, but Donald died tragically when his boat went too fast on Consiton Water in 1966 and his boat, "Bluebird" shot out of the water. This family portrait is written by his daughter Gina Campbell who is now herself preparing for the world sea speed record. In this family portrait, she recalls how she was abandoned to an orphanage after her parents divorced and was later scooped up by her father and accompanied him on his adventures. She heard tales of her grandfather's exploits and when her father died she took up the challenge to become the fastest woman in the world on water.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 2 Jan 2012
A must have book for anyone who wants to understand the personal as apposed to technical side of Britain's speed record breaking dynasty. The only criticism, and its a minor one. The illustrations could have been better. The subject lends itself to the spectacular use of photography to illustrate the almost other worldly nature of record breaking. In common with most other books on this subject, the publisher fell short. Notwithstanding this, a worthy addition to any Campbell library.
