Steve McQueen: The Last Mile with Barbara McQueen

TheLastMileThe photo book contains approximately 150 pictures documenting Barbara McQueen’s three-and-a-half year relationship with the movie icon, which includes candid shots from 1977 to 1980 – McQueen’s years out of the spotlight.

What the critics are saying about this book

 

“In 1980 ‘The King of Cool’ was given six months to live. He was just 50. His widow’s untold story is beautifully chronicled in a new picture book called Steve McQueen: The Last Mile.”
The Sunday London Times Magazine

 

“Barbara and Steve McQueen rocked. They were gorgeous and cool and shared a love of the West, of riding motorcycles, drinking beer in their rocking chairs on the front porch and riding around in beat-up pickup trucks.  Accompanying Barbara McQueen’s beautiful photos are her reminisces, which like the photos are relaxed and intimate.”
Idaho Mountain Express

 

“It’s the ‘King of Cool’ as you have never seen him before:  232 pages of Steve McQueen viewed by his third wife, Barbara, with Marshall Terrill.  We are big fans of McQueen here at Motor Trend, and you will be, too.”

“He was a hell-raiser in his Hollywood heyday but there was a completely different side to the late, great Steve McQueen, as his third wife Barbara McQueen reveals in her new book, Steve McQueen: The Last Mile.”
Sunday Express

 

“Barbara McQueen has hundreds of pictures that she took of their time together, when she was a budding photographer.  Now, she has put many of these photographs into a wonderful book, Steve McQueen: The Last Mile, in which she charts their life together.”
The Northern Echo

 

“Barbara McQueen, widow of Hollywood star Steve McQueen, speaks for the first time about their life during his final years and how she has coped since, as her pictorial book, Steve McQueen: The Last Mile is published 25 years after his death.”
Belfast Telegraph
“This revealing book chronicles Barbara’s  McQueen’s early history and successful modeling career, her years with Steve at Trancas Beach where they faced the outrageous antics of unlikely neighbor Keith Moon and Steve’s flying lessons at Santa Paula where the couple set up a home in an airplane hangar.  The book ends with a poignant look into Steve’s final days when, diagnosed with terminal cancer, he found solace in his conversion to Christianity.”

“Barbara McQueen’s photographs, which recorded the behind-the-scenes life of McQueen, capture him doing the things he loved:  driving old trucks, chatting with friends and making the movies Tom Horn and The Hunter.”
