Classic American story of underdogs (both equine and human, in this case) rising to the top, despite many adversities. Well-written and interesting. Captures the period (Depression era, 1930's) well. This book is well worth the time it takes to read it, which feels like no time at all once the true story gets you in its grip.

This is an excellent account of the story behind Seabiscuit. The book also had interesting information about jockeys and how they lived during this era. I found it to be a very fun and exciting read, especially the descriptions of the races. I would highly recommend this book to others.
