RIDING THE WALL OF DEATH
WRITTEN BY ALLAN FORD & NICK CORBLE
This, the first comprehensive world history of the Wall of Death, explores its origins around the turn of the nineteenth century and chronicles the Wall through its glory days before and after the Second World War, its subsequent decline and more recent revival. Along the way we discover the men and machines, including the great Indian Scout motorbikes, how the Wall has entered entertainment folklore and the innovations used to stand out from the crowd, ranging from the spherical Globe of Death to the use of cars and go-karts.
Co-written by Allan Ford, who has been a Wall rider for over thirty years, and including 150 original images, this is a fascinating and unique insight into a part of entertainment folkore.
