Winner of the William Dunhill Sports Book of the Year Award 2001. Seabiscuit is the true story that symbolizes a pivotal moment for America, as she came out of the depression in the 1930s and found the courage to bet on a winner against all odds. In 1936, America was a place of change. Laura Hillenbrand tells the defining story of the era: Seabiscuit, a stunted colt with asymmetrical knees that had for two years been hacked around no-good race tracks which led to permanent leg damage. Yet by 1937, Seabiscuit could draw crowds of 60,000 and had more newspaper column inches devoted to him than Mussolini, Hitler or Roosevelt. America had gone to the races for the first time since the Depression and fallen in love with a misshapen colt of great character.
