Listen to a sample chapter of Black Beauty Audiobook!
Black Beauty is Anna Sewell’s first and only novel. The story is told in the “first person” (or first horse) as an autobiographical memoir of a highbred horse named Black Beauty, from his carefree days as a foal on an English farm, to an elegant carriage horse for a gentleman, to his difficult and overworked times pulling cabs in London, and, finally, his happy retirement in the country. Along the way, he meets with many hardships and sorrows, and recounts tales of both cruelty and kindness. Each short chapter recounts an incident in Black Beauty’s life containing a lesson or moral typically related to the kindness, sympathy, and understanding treatment of horses. Written at a time when almost everybody came into contact with horses, the book Black Beauty strove to help readers see the need for kind treatment of horses, and animals in general. Black beauty has been a well-loved book from the moment it hit the press and has stood the test of time remaining a favorite of generations of readers who have been touched by the story of the beloved horse!
