Moody wrote this narrative history of the celebrated underdog racehorse Seabiscuit long before the recent bestselling book and movie popularized the subject. This is the best kind of nonfiction, reading like a novel while remaining true to fact. Jim Weiss narrates dramatically, giving life to the hopes and dreams of the characters, the flavor of the times, and the grand excitement of racing. Seabiscuit’s story inspires: in youth, he suffered first from neglect, then from overuse, until an owner, a trainer, and a jockey discovered him, believed in him, and helped him to become a legend. The story will keep listeners on the edge of their seats. Perfect for middle grade readers, adults, too. E.S. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
