Seabiscuit: an American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand


Monday, March 21 through Friday, April 15, 2016. Read by Jim Fleming.

With knobby knees and crooked legs, Seabiscuit was no one’s idea of a race horse, but looks aren’t everything. His quality, an admirer once wrote, “was mostly in his heart.” Laura Hillenbrand tells the story of the horse who became a cultural icon.
