Journal Entry 1 by wingSqueakyChuwing from Rockville, Maryland USA on Tuesday, July 5, 2022
This trade paperback (c. 2001) is one of 22 books I selected today from the fabulous book assortment and giveaway on Independence Day at Parkside Little Free Library in Derwood, Maryland, USA. Wishing everyone a Happy Fourth of July!

I read another copy of this book somewhere between 2003 and 2007. This is what I wrote after I read it...

This story takes us back in time to the 1930’s, a time of much turbulence in the world. This work, however, focuses on one horse and his important people. Together with owner Charles Howard, trainer Tom Smith, and jockey Red Pollard, Seabiscuit makes sports page history. The story reveals it just as it happened. We get to know the people and Seabiscuit first and then follow this horse’s training and racing days. The story is written in such a way that the races seem like actual play-by-plays. It’s often hard not to jump up and yell “Go, Seabiscuit!” as the races are run on the pages of this book! Well researched and lots of fun, this book is delightful reading for any animal lover or fan of sports history.

I'm releasing this book for...
