Who would've believed that an ungraceful little colt named Seabiscuit would be one of the most celebrated racehorses in history? This is the thrilling tale of the plucky horse who refused to quit, the down-on-his-luck jockey who fought for their chance, and the taciturn trainer who brought out the best in both.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was a great book! It's great for people who love horses and people who need to keep trying. Everyone should read it.
I loved this book as a kid. Still do. If you read/watched the 'movie version' Seabiscuit, read this too. The background that isn't all in the newer book will make your heart bleed. (Partly from the Howard's scrapbooks.)For anyone who's ever been grossly underappreciated and misunderstood.
I think that this is an awsome book. I just finished reading it two weeks ago and I still think about the book! I think that Seabiscut was a great horse. He shouled have his own statue!
