BSA Black Beauty - Audiobook CD
From its first publication in 1877, Black Beauty has been one of the best loved animal stories ever written. The dramatic and heartwarming tale is told by the magnificent black horse himself, from his idyllic days on a country squire's estate to his harsh fate as a London cab horse and his merciful rescue by two kindly old ladies. Filled with vivid anecdotes about animal intelligence, the novel derives a special magic from the love of all creatures, great and small, apparent on every page. But the book's lasting impact comes from its descriptions of a human society struggling to find the goodness within itself and its plea for kindness to all creatures a message so powerful that this favorite classic began a crusade for animal welfare that continues to this day.From the PublisherThis book is in Electronic Paperback Format.

As a young girl, she witnessed great and frequent abuse of horses. A knee injury at fourteen left her disabled, but she rode and drove horses very well, controlling them with voice alone, never a whip. She wrote Black Beauty in her fifties and died about a year after it was published in 1877. The book has had a tremendous impact in creating a new wave of humane thinking towards animals.FeaturesPublisher - Blackstone Audio, Inc.; Unabridged edition (December 1, 2011)Language - English.
