"Seabiscuit" is a compelling story about a connection between a horse, his jockey, and the entire nation. Laura Hillenbrand's narrative contains the best of everything that makes any book, great: a touching storyline about a remarkably determined horse with as much of a personality as his fiery, red-headed jockey; a collection of fascinating and horrifying details of horse racing that blend right into the story and are just as captivating as the plot itself; and grand descriptions of Seabiscuit's worst and finest hours on the racetrack that transport any reader from the sofa to a front row seat on the metal bleachers of Santa Anita. Simply put, this book is a masterpiece.
