I found your book extremely moving. I am not at all knowleagable about horses but Seabiscuit was completely compelling and I fell in love with the characters you described so vividly. Having just finished it I will miss reading about that wonderful horse, Seabiscuit, and his incredible human family:Smith, Howard, Pollard and Woolf.
Thank you so much! Kind regards, Christina Burgess
Congratulations

In the 1930's I was a ranch girl living in midwest heat, droughts, dust storms, world depression plus the apprehension of Hitler in Europe. You truly have no idea of how important Sea Biscuit was to all us "losers." All the family clustered around the radio at race times. Saturdays, when we went to town to shop, my parents scraped together the nickels so we could go to the movie to see the news reels about Sea Biscuit. He gave us hope. Thank you so much for the book, memories and the tears.

Laura,
Thank you so much for writing this book. It is the best I've ever read and will probably continue to be till the end of my days. Your writing and this fabulous story inspire me. Words can not express the joy I feel when living and breathing your book. This story is my favorite pair of jeans, my happiest memory, and my sweetest song. Thank you...

One of my favorite movies of all time was "Pharlap", until I watched "Seabiscuit". I bought several copies on DVD to give to friends and family. They all loved the movie as much as I did. I also bought it on a blue laser DVD. I also bought your book because of my interest in this incredible story.
Thank you, Laura, for all of your great work to share such a great story with the world. There are many people who sincerely appreciate all you have done.
Cheers

As an avid book collector I just acquired a first printing of Seabiscuit and would like to have it signed directly on the book (on the first flyleaf with a presentation to me). I live in Frederick, MD and if you are still in DC I could come there at any place at your convenience. I can supply references if necessary since security is the major concern or if you have any events upcoming reasonably soon I would be glad to come. I look forward to your reply. All the best, Joe Gustin

Dear Laura, Thanks so much for an amazing book! I am in high school, and we were required to read it this year in English class. I'll admit that I was not excited to read your book...but after a few chapters, I was totally hooked! I ADORE it and so did everyone in my class - we all held our breath through the suspense parts and cried our way through the sad parts....thanks for such a great book!

Re Seabiscuit: you said it best, last: “My thanks … to Tom Smith, Charles & Marcella Howard, Red Pollard and George Woolf for living lives of singular vigor and grace, … giving us the incomparable, unforgettable Seabiscuit.” (c.f. “It doesn’t matter who rides them, … who trains them, and it certainly doesn’t matter who owns them. In the final reckoning, they will only go as fast and as far as they are bred to go.” O. Gentry, ‘75). I’ve never been so captivated by a story and its teller.

My grandfather is Nelson Dunstan, a former reporter for the Morning Telegraph who died in 1961 and whoyou mentioned in your book, (briefly)Seabiscuit. I am trying to gather information on him and would appreciate if you might help with a source I might contact that can help me with this endeavor.
I am greatly appreciative of any information you might offer.

Hi,
My name is Anna Bolton and I am doing a school research project on Seabiscuit.
I am attempting to contact Ms Hillenbrand and have found contact details to be scarce. I was hoping that someone at your website may be able to direct me further.
I have also found your website incredibly useful and was hoping that you would be able to answer some questions for me.
Sincerely,
Anna Bolton

I read the book and saw the movie when they first came out. Enjoyed both! While I was serving in Qatar last year, a documentary of Seabiscuit was available on the Base internet. After watching the documentary, a few days later, I was in the Base Library when someone passed by and said to another person that the Seabiscuit paperback was on the shelf across from where I was reading! What a coincidence! I read the book again and bought the movie/DVD when I returned home. Classic.

Dear Laura,
Just a note to say I loved "Seabuscuit," and was moved by this account of a fine little horse who meant so much to so many. You are a wonderful writer whose friendly style includes all readers. Additionally, your New Yorker article was very honest and must have been painful at times to recount.
I look forward to your next book! I hope you are feeling well.
Sincerely,
Deirdre Reilly

I am writing a book about a ficticious racetrack in a city where one does not exist. It is informative and exciting. It is easy to read and can be enjoyed by anyone. I have twenty years race horse experience and I think this book has great potential. Do you want to help me?

How apropos I found this gem of a book in a special sale aisle of a drug store -- $3.00. I skipped the reviews and went straight to the Preface and Chapter 1. I was immediately drawn into a commanding understanding of horses, people, sports and storytelling. What a gift from an author to a book-lover.

The reviews were excellent but for some reason I hadn't read "Seabiscuit" until today. Thank you for writing this. Being factual and poetic simultaneously is a good trick that you seem to have mastered. Best to you and your future projects.
