  A Very Interesting Story
Willow White of Washougal, 8/25/2016
I always enjoy reading about horses especially ones like Seabiscuit, how they defied the odds and became something great. And it's nice how in this book Hillenbrand doesn't just tell you about the horse but also about the people that helped make Seabiscuit the legend he is. I think that boy and girl horse lovers alike would enjoy reading this book, although it might not interesting to younger readers. The pictures are also really cool. Although it is a long and sometimes tedious read, it is totally worth it.
