it was amazing
bookshelves: fact-based, non-fiction
Read 2 times. Last read July 7, 2017 to July 8, 2017.

Loved, Loved, Loved. Yes, I went through that phase of loving horses (as a twelve-year-old). I read all the Black Stallion books, Black Beauty, and books about Man O'War. Even named one of my Marx horses after him. Of course, I knew who Seabiscuit was from that time, so I recognized tons and tons of names (mostly the horses' names!) Whirlaway, Citation, Whichee, and naturally, War Admiral. I loved getting to know all the players in the book - and I love that Ms. Hillenbrand used quotes and obviously did her research. This was my second time reading it, and it still kept me hooked all the way through. Makes me want to get all the old books out and re-read them too.
