I just finished the book, after seeing the documentary on PBS. What a great book/story! Up until now, all I knew of Seabiscuit was a reference to him during a Three Stooges short.
Thank you, Laura

Just finished reading "Seabiscuit" and must tell you that it is one of the most interesting, informative and enjoyable true stories I have ever read.
I couldn't believe all of the things that the early jockeys had to go through.
Great Read!
Sincerely, Mary Nelson

I have never known anything much about horse racing. I found this book to be quite enlightening and intriguing. I think I shall keep it on the shelf and require my children to each read it eventually to appreciate the history and learn something about good research techniques! This was well done.

I am a long time horse raceing fan and want you to know how much I enjoyed your book about Seabiscuit. I seldom sit down long enough to read a book but once I started to read your book I could not put it down. I felt like I went back in time and could see myself hugging the rail watching Seabiscuit come down the stretch.Also in your book there is the best picture of a horse in motion I have ever seen but cannot find it anywhere. Page 250 Wolf and Seabiscuit at Pimlico. Is that picture available.

Laura,
Your book and the subsequent movie are among my favorite media publications in all my life.
I was especially captivated with your interview in the back of the Seabiscuit volume. Your courage and resoluteness were nothing short of marvelous.
I would love to hear from you, if it is ever convenient. I am a university professor and am contemplating publishing my own works.
Sincerely, Dr. William Mc Donald

Dear Laura Hillenbrand: I've just read your book, Seabiscuit, and loved it. A wonderfully done project. After reading it, I saw the movie and the PBS film, too. Thank you for your efforts. May I dare to voice just one minor criticism? Four times in the book, you used " snuck" as the past tense of sneak. I know this vulgarism is becoming commonplace in our declining culture, but your editor and publisher should have caught this. The past tense of sneak is simply, "sneaked."

Hi. I am writing a piece for the UK's HORSE magazine on star horses under 16hh and would like to include Seabiscuit but would love some original quotes. Could you contact me?
Thanks, Anna

In one edition, the book states Pollard's injury was due to workers trying to start a John Deere tractor and the tractor backfired, spooking the horse. In another edition, the book says only that the horse was spooked, and doesn't say anything about any tractor. Was the reference to a John Deere tractor found to be inaccurate and deleted in later editions? Or was the reference to a John Deere tractor added in later editions? Many thanks for any info you can provide. A great book!

I keep thinking about your article in the New Yorker, and want to know if you have fully recovered. I sincerely hope so. The writing was so striking, and the disease so terrible. Please reply back-channel, if you can. I know a great deal about it, since I have dealt with it for a long time, also.

At the end of November 2006 I'm reading Seabiscuit An American Legend for the third time in as many years. Time to watch the movie again. Ms. Hillenbrand's research and organization are stunningly on display in her book. Her always clear writing and engagingly paced story telling is equal to the life and spirit of Seabisbuit and the men and women orbiting his turn at racing greatness. I respect and admire Ms. Hillenbrand on a par with the Howards, Smith, Pollard and Seabiscuit.

Dear Laura,
I am writing a book and taking a college class in Creative Writing. My assignment is about the "Creative Process" and I wanted to do my report about you. I too suffer from Fibromyalgia and have been bed ridden for 3 years. I ask if you are open to sharing ideas of how you nurture your ideas, daily writing habits and your surroundings while you write, especially with your illness. Any ideas would be helpful as I would share it with the class. I thank you for your example. Sheri

Dear Ms. Hillenbrand,
I am retired excersise rider who has returned to the publishing industry. I have designed and produced books for various publishing houses in NY for over 20 years. I am in the process of putting together a proposal for a photographic and editorial essay on excersise riders. I have a clear vision for this book and would like to share the details with you if you have any time at all. I would like to know if you would be interested in writing the intro.

I've just finished reading the book and I think it's great! I major in literature and like to do some research in non fiction and new journalism. I do have several questions to ask Ms. Hillenbrand and wonder if it is possible to contact her. I've left my e-mail here.
