Ken Miles is a biography of the subject. It follows his life from the
early days in England to his tragic death at Riverside Raceway in 1966.
The book format is somewhat different from others. It is essentially a
scrapbook. More than 130 photographs are included. Many are from private
collections and have never before been published. A fascinating feature
is remembrances written by some who knew Miles best, like Carroll
Shelby, Augie Pabst, John Morton, Bill Pollack and Ken's son, Peter.
Miles himself was an accomplished writer and a few articles he wrote are
The book starts off with a complete chronology from birth to death and
ends with the eulogy delivered by the author's father and a never-before
assembled race record. Miles second-place finish at the 1966 Le Mans was
mired in controversy. This book goes some distance toward clarification.
Interspersed throughout are articles from period publications. The
scrapbook is held together with text by the author, a close friend of
Miles and his family.
