Waterstones Says

Both a rip-roaring tale of equestrian achievement and an evocative account of the Great Depression, Hillenbrand’s compelling narrative pays tribute to a crooked-legged horse and the three individuals who transformed him into a champion. Gripping, uplifting and cinematic, Seabiscuit is a rich and rewarding sporting read.

From the author of Unbroken, this is the bestselling true story of three men and their dreams for a racehorse, Seabiscuit.

In 1938 one figure received more press coverage than Mussolini, Hitler or Roosevelt. He was a cultural icon and a world-class athlete - and an undersized, crooked-legged racehorse by the name of Seabiscuit.

Misunderstood and mishandled, Seabiscuit had spent seasons floundering in the lowest ranks of racing until a chance meeting of three men. Together, they created a champion. This is a story which topped the bestseller charts for over two years; a riveting tale of grit, grace, luck and an underdog's stubborn determination to win against all odds.

Made into a major motion picture starring Toby Maguire and Jeff Daniels.

My first non fiction book...a my goodness, what a way to start.
