I would like some help regarding the Seabiscuit. Tom Clark was the man who supplied the special minerals that got such a remarkable recovery for the buscuit. There was a group picture of the Bisciut, Tom Clark and the owner thanking him for the liquid. I would like to get a copy of the picture if possible. Tom work with the horse also.
Thank you for what ever help you can give.

Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,

I firmly believe that the confluence of their lives was no mere coincidence, but rather a pre-ordained celestial alignment. And fortunately for them, their legacies have been faithfully enshrined by a journeyman writer many decades removed from when they last blazed over America’s premier racetracks. A brilliant effort to be sure!

Though you give much credit to others, I believe it is one of the most well written books I have read. Thank you.

Hi Laura,
Congratulations on your great success with Seabisquit. I am also a CFS & Fibro sufferer. I have been denied SSDI & have an appeal in now. It's been three years. When I learned of your succes in writing Seabisquit, I decided to write a novel myself. It is Christian fiction. I have struggled, to no avail, to find a way to get my foot in the door to publish it. I realize this is an odd request, but is there any way you could be of help to me in finding a publisher??

Ms. Hillenbrand, First-I wish you the best with your battle with CFS-give it hell. I am doing research on Ethel V Mars(Milky Way Stables and owner of Gallabadion 1940 Derby winner)
My father and grand father had a unique relationship with Ms. Mars and I would like to put some of the pieces together. Any help on where I can find records of her racing horses? If you respond- I will tell you more about the story- Possible book/movie.
Best to you

It was my good fortune to find a copy of the collector's edition at a library book sale, in pristine condition no less. I carried it & read it for days-the tears flowed, the hair stood up on the back of my neck for the Hundred Grander, the match race w/ War Admiral,and so much more. Thank you for this most amazing story.

We visited the property over the weekend, although it is off season and tours are not available, we were greeted and allowed to take pictures from a distance. With the exception of the newly restored barn, the property looks run-down. I was wondering where all the proceeds from the movie went? The story of SB is one of my all time favorites, we left the site humbled by the experience of standing in areas that such tragic but inspirational moments took place.

Ms Hillenbrand,.thanks so much for writing this remarkable and inspiring account of not just Seabiscuit but the men that nurtured his every talent! The "Biscuit" was an inspiration then..and is even more so today! You need to be given much praise for the remarkable story you have told in this book and for having been consultant on the movie! Both have inspired us both...Shelley is a person with a disability..and we all need heroes, inspirations.,.you have given us both! All the best!

Thank you for writing this book. When I began reading it, I never dreamed that I would become so absorbed in the lives of these men and this horse. You have an exceptional gift in putting into words the thoughts, feelings, and personalities of your characters. I felt that I was there with them during each phase of their lives. Thank you, also, for giving the gift of Seabiscuit, his pride, heart and spirit, to all of us. It has certainly enriched my life, as I am sure it has many others.

Dear Ms. Hillenbrand.
My wife was diagnosed with CFIDs in 2005. Our lives changed. We have found some incredible Drs.(Peterson in NV & his new CFIDs research center)& Chia in Los Angeles.Hopefully you have improved, but if not their work is promising. My wife has found incred-ible inspiration from you and your writing, and she is attempting, very slowly, to write a short story about someone with CFIDs to educate the public. Could recommend someone to help her edit/publicize/ her work? thanks!

Dear Ms Hillenbrand,
I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your book on Seabiscuit.
Especially about Tom Smith as I have read that section over and over,not only because of how you described him but as a beginning horse trainer he is what I hope to become with my horses not just being able to train them but to connect and "be" with them as well.
Thank you for inspiring me as a writer, horseman and with my own health issues as well.

Dear Laura,
My name is Frank Shepard and I'm 61 years old. I also have suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 26 years. 3 or 4 years ago, I started to take Selenium. I take 2 200mg tablets a day. It really has helped me. If you have any questions, please email me. :)

Laura, I saw you many years ago on one of the morning news shows. You described my symptoms that I have suffered with since 1980. My vertigo is a vision jumpiness--it has never left me but at times it's so severe that I'm homebound. I've seen at least 50 doctors since having a real bad case of the flu in 1980 at which time I started having episodes of extreme fatigue,vertigo&ringing in my ears. What type of Dr. did you see for your diagnosis? Please contact me if possible. Thank You,Donna

As a juvenile in the thirties and forties, though I lived in a family totally uninterested in horses and/or racing, I certainly knew of Man o' War, Seabisuit, Count Fleet and Whirlaway. I first realized I loved watching them race going up to Laurel while stationed in DC in the early fifties. History, primarily as biography, is my favorite reading and "Seabiscuit" is magnificent. I read it every two or three years. It's far superior to the film, which has the passion but not the insight.

Hi Laura,
I am so grateful you wrote the story of Seabiscuit and also grateful it was made into an incredible movie.
As an artist, I work at home. I cannot count the number of times I have the movie "Seabiscuit" playing as my companion. It is more often than not for I never tire of it.
The story is inspiring, sensitive, warm and loving. It is also very real.
Thank you Laura, with all my heart, for writing such a beautifully spirited piece of literary art.
Kindest regards,
