Seabiscuit was so good that I can't wait for the next Laura Hillenbrand book. I keep looking for it, but it's not out yet. I rarely read a book twice, but I did read Seabiscuit twice and enjoyed it as much the second time as the first. I may read it again!

Ms Hillenbrand,
Thank you for the extraordinary work on this book. I am a high school teacher and the book is one that I recommend to the students in our Sports & Outdoor Literature class. We also have used the movie to augment our discussion of the depression and sports figures of that time period in a U.S. History class Both the book and the movie are excellent resources for our classes and we applaud your efforts. Any response would be great motivation for our students love of history.

I've Been around racing over 50 years.I've also been a valued "handicapper" of thorough breds and taught handicapping in night schools.For your info, I believe in 2008 a movie about the greatest filly ever been; Ruffian. Snapped a foreleg in a march race against then Kentucky Derby winner (1973 I think) and thus put down. Now to my point. Kelso, best handicap horse ever.Grandson to Man O War. Research his duel with Iron Peg. Why don't you write on him? Kelso career would make great reading.

Hi!
My name is Erin and I have your book and absolutly love it. It is one of the greatest books I have ever read. Anyway, I am and eight grader and I am doing this History Day project on Seabiscuit. I love horses and that is why I picked Seabiscuit. I need some more information on him and I figured since you wrote the book that maybe you could help me with some specific things. Here is one of my questions.
What are some good quotes from the people of Seabiscuit?
Please right back here soon.

I had no desire whatsoever to read this book. Encouraged by my b-i-l, I finally read it. I cannot begin to tell you how this book and the people in it touched my heart. I wept, I laughed, I loved - this book, those people Red, Tom, Charles, Iceman... and Seabiscuit!! Thank you Laura, for bringing this wonderful story, and part of history, into my heart!

GREAT bio..raised on a farm with quarter horses, beautifully done and worth reading, the movie was true to life..one of the few to follow the author's account.
I hope Barbaro was given the same respect as Seabiscuit, a proper resting place. Does anyone know?
Laura...Write the Book "Barbaro"..it should be your story.

How about a book now about Barbaro? So sad.
Laura, I am still so inspired by your writing and would love to attend any local event where I could meet and thank you in person. Amazing how your words can evoke so much emotion.

Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,
I just had to write to you about your wonderful book. I read it over four years ago and have just finished reading it again. I'm the owner of an off-the-track Thoroughbred and he has just suffered an injury to the suspensory ligament of his left rear fetlock. Your insight into the life and experiences of Seabiscuit has given me hope that my horse will also recover given time and proper care. Thank you again for the telling of such a great horse story! Bobbie

irish tv screened the film over the holidays and i ordered the book the very next day- laura Hillenbrand has written a most wonderful account of the mood of america during this period and how these four ingredients, howard,smith, pollard and including the biscuit himself came together to create one of those events in history that only come around a couple of times in each century-a beautifully written piece i just couldnt put it down reading untill 3.30am most mornings-Thanks Laura

The book was beautifully written, I don't think it could have been any better. (And by the way to that college student with the disease, I read your comment, and it /will/ be okay. Just keep holding on.) Nice site XD.

I am a junior in college and just got the opportunity of a lifetime; however, I am also diagnosed with CFIDS. Having this disease will greatly impact whether I can take on this opportunity. Reading your account was like reading my own journal. I sob each time I read it. I'm scared of what this disease is doing to me and I'm scared that I will never get better. For some reason, I was led to you and your writing and I thank God that I was. You are an inspiration.

I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed your book and the movie about Seabiscuit. To write your wonderful articles and book with the condition CFS is amazing. I learned so much from reading your book twice and now gave it to my daughter. We had horses for our children when they were young until they married and I loved the horses just as much as the kids did. Just know that I admire your writing skills and story telling technique very much. Good luck with your health and God Bless! Marge

Beatiful book, full of action, emotion, and beauty. I can imagine Red riding the track right now with Seabiscut, just beautiful. Every school should read it, so much better then the Black Stallion.

I haven't read your book; my niece has a malady that has not been diagnosed, possibly CFS. For five, going on six years, she has been stripped of her life and unable to leave her bed. She has been writing a journal, my brother tells me it has merit. Please tell me that you would be interested in reading a transcript - she has been unable to drive, attend school, have a normal life. It would mean the world to her to get published at any scale. Thanks.
