Soon after the training process ended, Squire Gordon moved Black Beauty to his estate, a pleasant and large land with big open stables and orchards. His stable room was large, airy and comfortable and as he stood there in the stables eating nice corn and oats, he saw for the first time someone who was to become a dear friend: Merrylegs . This little pretty pony regularly bore the young daughters of the Squire, and he and the other horse—Ginger—became like mentors to Black Beauty. Initially though, all is not well with Ginger. As Merrylegs explains, Ginger is a rather irritable and cold horse whose meanness she blames on the cruel treatment she received from her masters.

“He is Squire Gordon, of Birtwick Park, the other side the Beacon Hills,” said James.
“Ah! so, so, I have heard tell of him; fine judge of horses, ain’t he? The best rider in the county.”

I think that Beauty learns the value of friendship. Because the story spans from Beauty’s birth to his old age, Sewell is able to demonstrate the lifelong nature of his friendships. The friends that he meets when he is a young remain his dear...

This book was written at the end of the 19th century by Anna Sewell, a lady who was crippled from her teenage. As a result she had a great interaction with horses and understood them well. This book was the first of it's kind, written from the point of view of an animal and hence it captured the imagination of the public in a very novel way. It went a long way in ensuring better treatment of horses, hitherto seen as mere beasts of utility and paved the way for humane treatment of all animals.

The book is written in the first person from the perspective of a horse. The language is extremely simple and the point of view is very consistent for its time. The book moves at a relaxing pace and is extremely absorbing without being dull or loose. Plot points are tight and the other characters, whether human or horses, are complex and completely fleshed out thus adding to the well crafted feel of the book. True to style, the human characters are explored more distantly than the other horses, as befits the perspective of a horse.

I was 9 when I first read this book and since then it has always remained my favourite. While actively promoting animal welfare, the book also deals with the timeless human values of companionship and compassion. Also, most unusually for its time, the book explores the philosophy of wrongdoing through ignorance and its cure through knowledge as exhibited by the groom Little Joe. It paved the way for other animal based classics such as those by Jack London and Rudyard Kipling. A treat for readers of all ages.

Black Beauty is the story of a black horse in England in the 1800s. Written in 1877 by Anna Sewell, it tells the story from the horse’s viewpoint. The story covers Black Beauty’s life from the time he is born until his old age. Students read a passage from Chapter 12 and complete activities about the passage: Black Beauty has been harnessed to a cart to take his owner, or master, and his caretaker named John on an trip into town. It had been raining a great deal, and while it had stopped raining, the wind was blowing very hard. As the passage begins, they are on their way home as it gets dark.

"Black Beauty" by Anna Sewell is the first-person story of the titular horse as he falls into the hands of numerous owners throughout his life, some caring and others cruel. The novel is unique as the first book written from an animal's perspective.

Sewell wrote "Black Beauty" in order to promote the humane treatment of horses, and it quickly captured the public's attention. Legislation was passed to offer greater protection for horses, and many of the old, fashionable methods of treating horses were discarded in favor of humane alternatives.

Black Beauty is a classic of the talking animal genre, but it's not one of those books where the animals talk to people. Nor is it a book about animals in the wild. It's a story told by a horse about his life, a horse who lives in the world of (mostly upper-class) late-19th-century England. He can talk to other horses and understand people, but the people can't understand him. Black Beauty is the story of the working life of a horse, starting as a well-bred horse for the gentry and, over the course of the book, experiencing a variety of different jobs and social classes.

It's a remarkable effect, and one that isn't offered by just any older fiction. Jane Austen is even farther removed from current culture, but since her books are all about people and human relationships, they don't have that delightful sense of the strange and new. Black Beauty is concerned essentially completely with obsolete technology and a work animal that most of us have interacted with only in passing; it has, over time, turned into a completely different kind of book in an alchemical transformation like the making of wine.

Some final notes about format, since this re-read was an experiment with reading books on the Kindle: this is one of the public domain books that you can "buy" for free from Amazon if you have a Kindle. It's also available in multiple formats from many of the free public domain book sites, such as Project Gutenberg . My guess is that the Amazon version is the Project Gutenberg version with all the Gutenberg notices stripped off, which is apparently common practice for their public domain books.
