Book Beginnings: The Eighty-Dollar Champion

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Eighty-Dollar Champion: Snowman, The Horse That Inspired a Nation by Elizabeth Letts

"The horse vans parked along Seventh Avenue came loaded up with dreams."

The vans were there for the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in 1958, so the anticipation is to be expected.

I bought this book at B&N.
