Description

SEABISCUIT, An American Legend is the true story of how three men and a great racehorse captivated the world. Seabiscuit was an unlikely champion. He was a rough-hewn, undersized horse with a sad little tail & knees that wouldn't straighten all the way. At a gallop, he jabbed on foreleg sideways, as if he were swatting flies. For two years, he fought his trainers and floundered at the lowest level of racing, misunderstood and mishandled, before his dormant talent was discovered by three men. From there, he competed in the cruelest years of the Depression, and this rags-to-riches horse emerged as an American cultural icon, drawing an immense fanatical following, inspiring an avalanche of merchandising, and establishing himself as the single biggest newsmaker of 1938-receiving more coverage than FDR or Hitler. A superb book. 399 pages. Hardback. In excellent condition. Retails new for $24.95.
