The true story of three men and their dreams for a racehorse -- Seabiscuit -- that symbolised a pivotal moment in American history, as the twentieth century's greatest nation found the courage to bet on itself to win against the odds. Now a major motion picture directed by Gary Ross and starring Toby Maguire and Jeff Daniels. just as Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind was published. In their place, modern America was born. But what defined this new era? Nothing more than the story of Seabiscuit, a stunted colt with asymmetrical knees that had for two years been hacked around no-good race tracks which led to permanent leg damage. Yet by 1937 Seabiscuit could draw crowds of 60,000 and had more newspaper column inches devoted to him than Mussolini, Hitler or Roosevelt, his popularity peaking during his appearances at the Santa Anita Handicap. America had gone to the races for the first time since the Depression and fallen in love with a misshapen colt of great character. Now it wanted a winner. Showman was the trainer; Red Pollard, abandoned by his poverty stricken family at a race track became the rider; and Charles Howard, a pioneer car manufacturer in San Francisco in the 1920s was the owner and financier. These three combined to create the legend of Seabiscuit and epitomise a dream for the emerging new America.

If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. In 1939, Louis Zamperini was training for his second Olympics, his eye on the once impossible 4 minute mile. His life stretched out before him, full of promise. Then the war began. The Olympics were cancelled. Pulled into conflict with the rest of the world, Louis enlisted in the Army Air Corps. The Corps sent him to Hawaii as a bombardier on a B-24. When an air battle destroyed their plane and wounded most of their crew, Louis and the remaining men were transferred. Not long after, they were sent out on a rescue mission in a rickety plane that had been cannibalized for parts. The plane went down over the Pacific. Adrift on a raft with his pilot and the new tail gunner, Louis floated for more than a month until their raft reached Japanese territory, where the living men were taken prisoner. He had already survived impossible odds, but the worst of his ordeal was only just cresting the horizon. Available on PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device. (c) 2015 All Rights Reserved
