💥The title character, a black horse aptly named Black Beauty, lives a good life in the care of a wealthy nobleman and believes all men to be as gentle and caring as his master. He gets a rude awakening when the family's circumstances change and he is sold... and over the years he changes hands and knows a variety of masters, some caring, others ignorant, and still others outright cruel. After much hardship and perseverance, Black Beauty finds a home full of love and kindness.
💥the story was written before the invention of automobiles when society depended on horses for nearly everything. The animal rights movement was in its infancy, and exploitation of and cruelty towards workhorses were quite common. Anna Sewell, who frequently drove carriages because she had difficulty walking due to a childhood injury, wrote Black Beauty to promote the humane treatment of horses. The novel is said to have inspired animal-welfare reforms and is credited in particular with having hastened the abolishment of the checkrein.
💥A One-of-Kind Classic with Wonderful Illustrations throughout the book. Originally published in 1877 written by Anna Seawell
