Bluebird and the Dead Lake (1965)

In 1964, on the saltpan of Lake Eyre, Donald Campbell set out to drive his Bluebird car at over 400mph - faster than any man in history. Things had been going wrong from the start: unseasonal rains, low funds...even an Aboriginal curse. With death shimmering on the horizon before him, Campbell tried to hold his nerve until he broke the record.

First published: 1965 (Collins)

FUN FACT: An outbreak of chickenpox amongst John's children back in London and  John's wife demanding his return very nearly put an end to this project - luckily Campbell intervened, calmed her down and stopped a recall to London!
