      My first horse book. Published in England in 1877, this book has never been out of print. It became an immediate best seller of the Victorian era & led to animal welfare reforms all over the world. This book ws the forerunner to the pony genre of children's literature.

      Black Beauty (Anna Sewell, 1877) Story is narrated in the first person as an autobiographical memoir told by a horse named Black Beauty—with his carefree days as a colt on an English farm with his mother, to his difficult life pulling cabs in London, to his happy retirement in the country. Along the way, he meets with many hardships and recounts tales of cruelty and kindness. Each short chapter recounts an incident in his life containing a lesson related to understanding & treatment of horses.
