Seabiscuit: An American Legend

Laura Hillenbrand

Recorded Books #96826  0-7887-9642-9

For more than a dozen years Laura Hillenbrand has been publishing articles about Thoroughbred racing. She is an editor and contributor to EQUUS magazine and her articles have appeared in American Heritage and many racing journals. In this runaway best-seller, she tells the remarkable story of the horse that became a national icon. Seabiscuit was a crooked little horse, built like a cinderblock, but there was something special about his attitude. In 1936, when a wealthy businessman, an aging trainer, and a destitute jockey focused their attention on Seabiscuit, they were astonished at the results. Despite heavy handicaps, Seabiscuit broke one track record after another. And despite the Great Depression, fans traveled hundreds of miles to see him. Hillenbrand colors Seabiscuit’s rise to fame with vivid anecdotes from the volatile, often-bizarre world of horse racing. At times astounding, hilarious, and heartbreaking, Seabiscuit has been called "one of the best sports biographies in the history of the genre" by Sports Illustrated.
