Item Description...
Seabiscuit: The Saga of a Great Champion, is the first complete story of the legendary thoroughbred who captured the heart of a nation. Introduced by Grantland Rice and written by seasoned track writer B. K. Beckwith, its pages are full of unique stories about the beloved horse and the people who were closest to him. Presented in its original oversized format and featuring period photographs, a full-color painting of Seabisicuit, and specially commissioned artwork by Howard Brodie, Seabiscuit: The Saga of a Great Champion follows the thoroughbred's illustrious career, from his humble birth in Kentucky to his remarkable string of races across the country from 1936 to 1940, and culminating in his stunning victory at Santa Anita. In researching her best-selling Seabiscuit: An American Legend, Laura Hillenbrand drew on Seabiscuit: The Saga of a Great Champion, a rare contemporary account originally published in 1940 that preserves insights, anecdotes, and quotes found no where else. Beckwith's book will delight anyone interested in seeing more and learning more about this great horse and will allow readers to experience the excitement of Seabiscuit as the story unfolded and in the words of those who were there---Charles S. Howard, Tom Smith, Red Pollard, and George Woolf.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a time of grace and heros  Oct 25, 2008
The photos and sketches are wonderful as is the timeliness (1940) of the writing. It's good to go back to the time and era when Seabiscut was alive and breathing.
Timeless inspiration  Jul 16, 2007
Seabiscuit was my favorite book in elementary school and still rates high amongst a handful of favorites. Many times over decades, circumstances gained perspective by recalling the depth of spirit and perseverance conveyed so concisely by Mr. Beckwith. Seabiscuit's story is truly for all ages. I believe stories like this are a reason why people are prone to assign human emotions to animals or treat them like a best friend.

As a child I often dreamt about having a horse, hoping I might even be fortunate enough to have one like Seabiscuit. I ended up with four, all of whom indelibly changed my life. I took care of them as if my life depended upon them; even sleeping with them in their stalls when I could get away with it. Bingo, Scamper, Scully and Crackerjack have permanent places in my heart. With them is a picture of Seabiscuit from Mr. Beckwith's book. They always gave their very best and showed me mine. Anyone who reads Seabiscuit's story will come to understand that the innate ability to recover and succeed resides in every person and all life. Opportunity to find and use that power of heart and energy is always available.

I am infinitely grateful to Mr. Beckwith for recognizing and writing Seabiscuit's story and especially to my father for making a vital, life changing dream come true.
Hard to put down  Jan 7, 2004
Inspiring story placed in compelling historical setting. Beautifully done by someone who knew the main characters well.
Nothing to find fault with here. Terrific read.
Beck Was There  Sep 27, 2003
I knew B.K. Beckwith personally, and worked with him the last ten years of his life at Santa Anita. He was our television commercial spokesperson for the Santa Anita Handicap for several years, recounting remembrances of Seabiscuit. He was a consummate horseman turned journalist and writer, and had been at Santa Anita from the opening on Christmas 1934. He also wrote "The Story of Santa Anita," which was never published commercially, but used the same heroic and emotional Grantland Rice style that you enjoy in his Seabiscuit book. His memory was a treasure, and since he wrote this book contemporaneously with events, you can feel the horse come alive, as well as the people and the places. This is SO GREAT to have the publisher find this work of art, enjoyable for anyone who loves horses, or racing, of any age. The drawings by Howard Brodie -- who went on to great fame otherwise -- are superbly reproduced, and so are the historic photos. You can see the 'Biscuit's personality come through, especially when he's looking out of his personal railroad car at all the fans and cameras, and in several others!
Inspiration for all  Sep 18, 2003
Owner of Ponder Publishing Company, LLC, my first response after reading was `I wish I had found Beckwith's story before this publisher did!' I was there! I heard Seabiscuit breathing. I saw him sweat, felt his determination, smelled the liniment. You could taste the air of early last century, to anguish and rejoice with one horse's determination to Keep on Keeping on, despite all adversity. Here, love touches a reader, as it touched the crowds who flocked to admire the Biscuit, in the flesh, his ample flesh. My Christmas shopping is done this year!
