Fitting tribute to Big Red
on November 17, 2010
This is a treasure of a book about Big Red. It is full of wonderful pictures, some showing off his exquisite conformation even at a very early age. The text is well written and helps to convey the endearing personality of this beautiful champion. If you are familiar only with his accomplishments on the track you only know half the story. His personality was the other half of the story. Secretariat was a real extrovert who was very attuned to people. This book is written in a way that gives you a sense of his personality and that is what I really appreciate about it--that and the beautiful pictures, of course. This book is written with warmth and respect and I find it a more enjoyable read than Nack's book on Secretariat which is primarily facts and racing stats.
