Black Beauty

By Anna Sewell

About This Book

This book, called "A Biography," traces the history of a noble black horse, from his youth, sleek, fleet-footed, strong, and almost a pet of the family that owns him through his long life. Beauty's history is often a sad one, first a carriage horse and saddle horse, when his owners fall on sad times he is sold and abused and sold again. He pulls a London cab in the days when a "cab" was a horse-drawn carriage, and then he is sold to a cruel drover who starves and injures him. Yet there is still time for a happy ending, and the day comes when Beauty finds green pastures and kind masters again.

About Anna Sewell

Although herself an invalid and hardly able to walk, Anna Sewell's heart went out to the sufferings of the helpless horses who powered England's wheels before the days of engines, trucks and cars. Her touching book did much to rouse public opinion against the cruel treatment to which work horses were often subjected. And her pen supplied the horsepower that helped to change the world she lived in.
