Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand

Find i catalogThis book tells the story of the race horse Seabiscuit, his jockeys, owner, and the many people involved in his life. The author goes depth to explain what the life of a race horse jockey was like during the Great Depression in the United States. She illustrates how difficult it was for their health and other aspects of their lives. I thought this book was interesting because it gave context to what was going on around the country during Seabiscuit’s popular racing career. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes history, sports, and racing.
