Seabiscuit. Seabiscuit was a Thoroughbred racehorse descended from the legendary Man o' War. His sire, Hard Tack, was known for speed but also a vicious temper. His dam, Swing On, belonged to a Mrs. Gladys Phipps. From his father, Seabiscuit inherited his stubbornness and competitive instinct. I knew of this book, and how much others liked it. It was a great book, with multiple heroes--the horse, his owner, trainer, and jockey. Putting the long journey for Seabiscuit to prove he could REALLY run into the context of the Depression improved it. This book could have benefitted from tighter editing.

Seabiscuit. True story of the undersized Depression-era racehorse whose victories lifted not only the spirits of the team behind it but also those of their nation.

Book Review Seabiscuit An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand. from Random House, pages (includes acknowledgments, notes, and index) The recent abundance of horse racing books released can be attributed to this one masterpiece. In her long-awaited new book, seven years in the making, Laura Hillenbrand writes with the same rich and vivid narrative voice she displayed in her blockbuster bestseller, Seabiscuit. Telling an unforgettable story of a man’s journey into extremity, Unbroken is a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit. Audio Excerpt. As for Seabiscuit, he is clearly just a race horse with a bit of a temper and with holding low esteem (until the three race men break the horse out of that zone) rather then a humane being just as 78%.
