Summary:

Who would have believed that a knobby-kneed little colt called Seabiscuit would become one of the most celebrated racehorses of all time? Although Seabiscuit was the grandson of the legendary Man O' War, he was neither handsome nor graceful. His head was too big, his legs were too short, and his gallop was awkward. During the depths of the Great Depression, Seabiscuit won against incredible odds and uplifted the hearts of Americans from the streets to the White House. In this classic originally published in 1962, Ralph Moody recounts the thrilling tale of the plucky horse who refused to quit, the down-on-his-luck jockey who didn't let horrendous accidents keep him out of the saddle, and the taciturn trainer who brought out the best in both. Moving and inspirational, Come On Seabiscuit! is a reminder of the qualities that make a real American champion.

    Awesome. I enjoyed the story line and the narrator. It was inspirational and made my long commute a lot shorter.

    I haven't seen the movie so I really only knew the bare basics of the story. True story, rags to riches sort of thing, and about a race horse. I reallly enjoyed it, very well told, excellent narrator etc.
