Black Beauty is frequently dismissed as a children's book or only for horse-crazy girls. In reality, it's not only a novel that adults and children can both enjoy, but it's also a powerful statement about animal welfare and treating animals as more than just living machines.
Black Beauty, lives a good life in the care of a wealthy nobleman, and believes all men to be as gentle and caring as his master. When the family's circumstances change and he is sold, he gets a rude awakening... and over the years, he changes hands and knows a variety of masters, some caring, others ignorant, and still others outright cruel. And as he and his foal-hood pal Ginger struggle to survive in a world where humans regard horses as nothing more than fur-covered engines, he realizes that man has a great capacity for cruelty... as well as redemption and kindness.
