Follow the adventures of a young horse in Victorian England, beginning with his idyllic upbringing with his mother on a farm, to his short career as a carriage horse for a wealthy family, to his tough and often abusive work as a cab horse. From the kindest to the cruelest of owners, Black Beauty always tries to listen to his mother's advice and do his work with a good will. This book was hugely influential in cultivating public interest in making sure horses were treated without cruelty. An ardent advocate for animal welfare, English author Anna Sewell published her first and only novel in 1877, five months before her death. This unabridged version was taken from the 1911 American copyright edition.
