Black Beauty is a handsome, sweet-tempered colt
with a strong spirit. As a young colt he is free to gallop in the fresh
green meadows with his beloved mother, Duchess, and their kind master.
But when his owners are forced to sell him, Black Beauty goes from a
life of comfort and kindness to one of hard labour and cruelty. Bravely
he works as hard as he can, suffering at the hands of men who treat
animals badly. But Black Beauty has an unbreakable spirit and will, and
is determined to survive . . .
