From the Publisher:
A horse in nineteenth-century England recounts his experiences with both good and bad masters.
Anna Sewell's only book, BLACK BEAUTY, was published in 1877. Since that time, it has become a landmark not only in children's literature, but also in the animal's rights arena. Sewell's work pointed out the cruel way that animals, particularly horses, were treated in the 1800s and resulted in animal protection laws.
