This book chronicles the amazing story of Seabiscuit. Filled with immeasurable details and anecdotes, the book relays the triumphs and hardships of horse racing in the early 20th century. Although written as non-fiction the book reads as a complete story. Its gripping details make the reader feel as if you are reliving the moments in Seabiscuit's career. The thoughts and emotions of the characters are vividly brought to life. I am not a horse racing enthusiast but found this book wonderful and captivating.
