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.

Author Bio: Anna Sewell

Author Bio: Anna Sewell

Anna Sewell (1820–1878) was born in England. A knee injury at fourteen left her disabled, but she rode and drove horses very well. She began learning about horses early in life, spending many hours driving her father to and from the station from which he commuted to work. Her dependence on horse-drawn transportation fostered her respect of horses. She wrote her one book, Black Beauty, in her fifties, and it was published in 1877 just five months before she died. Although it is now considered a children’s classic, she originally wrote it for those who worked with horses. She said “a special aim [was] to induce kindness, sympathy, and an understanding treatment of horses.” The book has had a tremendous impact in creating a new wave of humane thinking towards animals.
