The World’s Fastest Indian
By Roger Donaldson

Burt Munro - A Scrapbook of His Life

Includes a bonus DVD, 2 hours of viewing, includes ‘God of Speed’ Documentary

This book is Burt in his own words, as well as the reminiscences of some of his friends and others who, like me, found him to be an irresistibly entertaining personality. Much of the text in this book is from transcriptions of the interview audio tapes that were made for my documentary; I have attempted to transcribe them verbatim - warts and all. I have included all the errors, stammers, and idiosyncratic speech patterns of the people who were interviewed, as well as indicating the noises and background sounds that are on the recordings. This may not be the usual way of presenting the text for a book but I think this gives a real feel and flavour of Burt and the great characters that populated his life in a way that a more formal presentation wouldn't achieve.
