Laura,
I watched the movie and it was the best horse movie ever, but your book adds things the movie just cannot touch. You dug up so much. Would be great to see the films you found. I trust people will give you additional material and you can revisit this story instead of making it the last chapter. How much of the real story is lost to time? Thanks for salvaging so much of it and putting it together.

Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,
Loved your book: Seabiscuit. I grew up in the shadow of Narragansett Park in Pawtucket, RI. Could you tell me the address where the Pollards lived in Pawtucket? I would love to see the house. It would be my small way of touching history. Thank you.

Ms. Hillenbrand - I just finished reading your wonderful book and want to thank you very much for writing about this great horse and the people who shared Seabiscuit's experiences. I literally raced through the book, not wanting to put it down because I was so eager to devour every word and photo. Thank you.

Dear Ms Hillenbrand,
I have just finished your delightful book while convalescing, and am sure it has helped me to feel better. I was and am enchanted with the wonderful story you have told so well, and the wonderful horse Seabiscuit. Thank you for sharing this story with us.

Outstanding story. Kept me on edge. Cried at end. Happy Seabiscuit died happy and contented. Felt awful for Tom Smith, no one at his death came forward. How sad. Where was his son, and no mention was made of his wife. Kudos to Charles for listening to his trainer and for taking care of Seabiscuit so well in his retirement years. And God Bless Red Pollard too. What a trouper. Can't wait until I read Unbroken. Read about your illness, so sorry.

Amazin story. Animal lover me cried at end. Saw my first and only live racehorse 46 ago, their beauty amazed me. I'M 70, want to ride a horse, but know they smell fear, and unfortunately, fear is in me, though I adore them. Anyway, ur story amazing. The men behind Seabiscuit, amazing. ur talent, amazing. Just ordered "Unbroken" and didn't connect that ur the same author. Look fwd to rdg it, pls more books. real life is so oopen to be told. Thank u for ur interest-sory Tom died alone.

How to say enough in only 500 characters. Amazing book. Animal lover that I am, cried at the end. Have always loved horses, afraid to get on one because they sense your fear. I'm 70, hope springs eternal. Saw my first (and only) live racehorse about 46 years ago and marveled at their beauty. Poor Seabiscuit could have been lost forever until these 3 men redeemed him. I love your writing, intense. Just ordered "Unbroken" not relzg same author. more books, u write amazing real life. Tks.

Hello. My sister in law, Rivka Solomon, is a 20 yr CFS sufferer. Though,bedridden, she has become a strong advocate in the CFS community for raising awareness of CFS the lack of federal funding for CFS research. She has organized protests, produced videos, and contributed to articles about CFS. Though she is "untiringly" persistent, her efforts are unheeded. She could use your support and your name recognition with her efforts. Please contact me and I can put you in touch with her. Thank you.

Seabiscuit is going to last as one of the best books I have ever read. I finished it yesterday and find I am not wanting to pick up my next book because I know that it can't be as goo and because I want to keep the story of that horse and all the people involved in my mind. I don't know how you wrote such an amazing book, every paragraph a treasure to read. Thank you.

I read "Unbroken". Had to keep reminding my self that he lived through all that I was reading. Just finished the incrediable story of Seabiscuit. Your book was hard to put down. I was amazed at how much I learned about life in those times in both books. What a wonderful endevor and tribute. I felt as I was at the track through those races and the tears flowed in the end.
Your gift to write non fiction with such wonderful style is a treasure.
Thank you for Unbroken and Seabiscuit. Next?

I've read many books on WWII history (one of my passions). Unbroken is now at the top of my list of favorites. Your descriptions of prison camp horrors were some of most graphic I've ever read. Thank you for discovering Louis Zamperini's story and sharing it with the world.

Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,
Thank you so much for writing the book about Louis Zamperini's life. You did an outstanding job authoring the book and detailing his experiences for readers. I have a much greater understanding of what WWII servicemen gave to preserve our freedoms. Thank you again for your years of work which I will recommend to everyone I can to read the book. May God bless you and your family.
Sincerely,
James Brown

Its a story i wont be forgetting.

I read your book and while I am not a huge racing fan, I found the book to be very well written and very entertaining.
You captured the intimate moments in all of the players lives to a point where as I was reading, I almost felt as if Red and the rest were personal friends.
Great book.

Loved Seabiscuit--one of best books ever read--bothered as to why Howard buried Seabiscuit secretly--seemed out of character--did you ever garner any indication as to why he did so?--surely hope your health is much, much better.

Thank you for your wonderful book - I fell in love with Seabiscuit - what a wonderful trainer and owner he had! I don't think the movie did any of the people or horse justice. Thanks for the book as well as Unbroken - I loved it also.

Laura:just read Seabiscuit after reading Unbroken, two great books. Special thanks to you for the insight into Reds character, a man who "lived exactly as he chose" and therefore was "more free and thus more fully alive". Great point for us all to think about and it certainly helped me. Hope a third book is in the works!
