Description

The timeless tale of a horse named Beauty

With his fine black coat, his one white foot, and the distinctive white star on his forehead, Black Beauty is a magnificent creature, the pride of Squire Gordon's country estate. But when the squire has to move abroad, Beauty's fortunes change, and at the hands of other masters he suffers the cruelty and disregard that were sadly all too common for horses in Victorian England. In his wise, candid, and endearing voice, Black Beauty offers insight not just into his own experiences, but into the lives of Ginger, Merrylegs, Peggy, Captain, and all the special horses he meets along the way.

Crippled by a childhood injury, for most of her life Anna Sewell relied on horses to get around. She wrote Black Beauty to encourage readers to view these animals with the same respect and sympathy she did, and the enduring popularity of the novel and its profound influence on the animal rights movement are testaments to her remarkable success.This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

      • bioText:

        Anna Sewell (1820–1878) was an English novelist best known as the author of the children's classic Black Beauty. A childhood injury left Sewell unable to walk or stand for long periods of time without a crutch, and she got around by horse-drawn carriage for most of her life. Written during her final years, Black Beauty is Sewell's only published work. She lived just long enough to see it become a bestseller.
