Format: Hardcover
This is a must have book for anyone who would like to understand the personal side of the lives of Britain's speed record breaking dynasty. Gina's father, Donald Campbell, made a great impression on her and she has followed in her family's footsteps. She became a powerboat record-breaker, winning two women's world water speed records in 1984 and 1990. Gina completely opens up about her relationship with him, and about rebuilding her life, after his tragic death. Her father may now be long gone, but he lives on in what Gina has inherited from him. Determination, guts and tenacity, but above all, warmth and kindness, and that really shines through in the way she lives life and tells her story. Only one criticism, and its a minor one. The illustrations could have been better. The subject lends itself to the use of photography to illustrate the almost other-world that Gina grew up and took part in. Perhaps here, the publisher fell a little short. Notwithstanding this, Daughter of Bluebird is a very worthwhile volume. The Campbell flame still burns brightly.

While I agree TOTALLY with all the 5-star reviews regarding the subject matter etc - and also the photographs are very good - WHY. ON. EARTH??? Does this book seem not to have been edited, at all? From reading the book, I would imagine it's because Gina Campbell clearly does not like "being told what to do", by anybody! But what a massive mistake. Just a wee bit of editing, cutting, re-phrasing, "reining-in", and also general guidance as to appropriate material (really, do we have to know the details of ALL Gina's "conquests", however brief?! And do we want to hear in detail how much she "hates" the Heritage Lottery Fund, when she clearly actually has NO idea or understanding of how their application and grants processes work?) would have turned this into a truly terrific book instead of, frankly, a mediocre one. From the state of the book also, I assumed that Great Northern Books must therefore be a self-publishing outfit; but they do not appear to be so. It is therefore doubly-shameful that this book has made it into the public domain in its current state - GNB should be utterly ashamed of themselves. Highly-engaging subject matter, told by someone with an utterly unique perspective, with many marvellous personal photographs - but all badly let-down by shoddy, shoddy presentation.

This book is absolutely brilliant! Its a must read for any Campbell fanatic, but not solely referencing her father and grandfather, its about the girl's own exploits. She gives the "human" side to the man we think we know, an insight to the relationships with family and colleagues plus how she has been unknowingly influenced by the mantle of her name to become one of the best.

This book will make you chuckle and you will also get a cold shiver, but its an honest book about her life both in and out of the speed record breaking fraternity. She maybe the last of the "Campbell's", but she has/is proving to be made of the same stuff - what's going to come next??????
