This unforgettable story takes place in nineteenth-century England, through the eyes of Black Beauty. The reader will feel the love and cruelty that this great stallion experiences. Beginning with Black Beauty's wonderful life with his master, Squire Gordon, and the kindness of Jerry Barker to the terrible times as a "cab" horse having to tolerate the torture of the "proper" English bearing reins, Black Beauty's story speaks for all animals that can't speak for themselves.
