Black Beauty - HB
NoteThis is a USED book.
Black Beauty or the "autobiography of a horse" as it is subtitled was published in 1877. It was received to great acclaim and was not only sold by booksellers but was also distributed by animal rights campaigners.In fact, it would not be going too far to claim that it helped change people's attitudes towards domestic animals.
The story is told from Black Beauty's perspective and we follow his every move, from when he first grows up and is sold on to a rich family, through all of his changes of owner until his lucky rescue at the end.
