Phil Hill: Yankee Champion, First American to Win the Driving Championship of the World
by William F Nolan
Originally published in 1962 and out of print long enough to be worth some serious money in the collectable-book marketplace, Phil Hill: Yankee Champion was revised, updated and enhanced by the original author William F Nolan for this new release. Publisher Brown Fox Books put a lovely Peter Hearsey piece of art on the dust jacket and sourced 100+ photos, many never published before, to complete this volume.
Nolan’s prose captures time, place and the personalities so well that you, the reader, feel as though you are there, live and in person, at whatever moment it is you are reading about. And those moments trace Phil Hill’s career and life in detail from earliest days in the 1930s through achieving the Formula 1 Grand Prix Championship in 1961. The new material in the concluding chapter brings the reader up to date. As good a read now as then…maybe better.
