The story is written from the point of view of a highbred horse named Black Beauty.

The story starts with his happy, playful days as a colt on an old English farm and spans all the way to his hard-working days pulling a London cab to his long-awaited retirement in the country!

During all this time he enoucnters a lot of cruelty and kindness. The chapters are short and each one details an incident in Black Beauty's life that depicts a moral lesson of treating horses with kindness and understanding rather than cruelty and indifference.

Anna Sewell's detailed observations and descriptions made this book an immediate best-seller. Anna lived just long enough to see this book become a success. It was her first and only novel!

Anna wrote this novel with a special purpose in mind: "its special aim being to induce kindness, sympathy, and an understanding treatment of horses."
