Black Beauty

Anna Sewell

Unabridged

Softbound

$3.50

Black Beauty is one of the most beloved and celebrated animal stories every written, a suspenseful and deeply moving account of a harse’s experiences at the hands of many owners – some sensitive riders who treated him gently; others cruel drives who thoughtlessly invlicted lasting damage.

Written as the animal’s autobiography and as an appeal for the humane treatment of horses, Anna Sewell’s well-loved classic reveals as much about human conduct and the social ills of the 19th century as it does about the treatment of animals. Scenes from the lives of both the landed gentry and the impoverished working class offer a subtle but well-rounded perspective of social conditions in England at that time.

I recommend it for ages 9 and older.
