Publisher's Description

Perhaps the most celebrated animal story of the nineteenth century, Black Beauty is the suspenseful and deeply moving account of a horse's experiences at the hands of many owners — some, sensitive riders who treated him gently; others, cruel drivers who thoughtlessly inflicted lasting damage.
Written as the animal's autobiography, and as an appeal for the humane treatment of horses, Anna Sewell's beloved classic reveals as much about human conduct and the social ills of the time 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 during the late nineteenth century.
Animal lovers of all ages will cherish this memorable story, now available in this unabridged, modestly priced edition.

Author Bio

Anna Sewell (1820–78) suffered a childhood injury to both ankles that forced her to rely upon horse-drawn transportation for the rest of her life. Sewell's love of horses and concern for their humane treatment inspired the creation of her only book, Black Beauty, which has touched the hearts of generations of readers since its 1877 publication.
Cecil Aldin (1870–1935) is renowned for his paintings of animals and rural life as well as for his book and magazine illustrations of equestrian scenes. An avid sportsman and Master of Foxhounds, he served as a Remount Purchasing Officer during World War I and was active in training horses for army service.
