“It is good people who make good places.” Well-born and well-bred, the handsome horse named Black Beauty spends his early days with his mother at an English farm. Treated with affection and kindness, he is encouraged to be good always. “. . . I hope you will fall into good hands; but a horse never knows who may buy him, or who may drive him; it is all a chance for us; but still I say, do your best, wherever it is, and keep up your good name.”As Black Beauty grows up and changes hands, will he be able to endure the cruel masters, keeping in mind his mother’s lessons of goodness?Bringing to light the mistreatment of horses in England in the nineteenth-century, Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty was a galloping success. One of the bestselling books of all time, it has been adapted for films and theatre and has been an inspiration for several other works of literature.
