This book reveals the real Burt Munro, the man behind the movie. Donaldson has been studying Munro for many years. He made a documentary on him in 1971, called Offerings to the God of Speed as well as the 2005 international hit The World's Fastest Indian. During research for both films, he collected lots of material which has never been published. Munro's son also released his fatherÆs family scrapbooks to Donaldson, allowing them to be published for the first time. In preparation for the documentary Donaldson interviewed Munro and taped him chatting to cronies and co-workers. These tapes have been transcribed for this book, presenting the real Burt Munro in his own words.
