Description

Amazingly fast, incredibly strong, and fantastically gentle, Black Beauty is a horse that touches the hearts of all who meet him. Born on a grand estate in the English countryside, he spends his days galloping across open meadows and carrying adoring children on his back. But when a tragic accident forces Black Beauty’s owner to sell him, this joyful life quickly comes to an end. Outside the estate is a world where horses are treated with bitter cruelty and thoughtless violence. Nothing, however, can break Black Beauty’s spirit—or his great love. For he knows that someday, he will find happiness again.

Black Beauty was written in an age when people took horses for granted just as we take cars for granted today. Many times, people misused horses. In her book, Anna Sewell spoke to the world on behalf of horses, reminding people that animals are living, feeling creatures who deserve to be treated with kindness. Today, Black Beauty is a beloved classic of children’s literature that has captured the hearts of generations.
