作者:安娜·塞维尔

内容简介:“我还想要什么呢?”黑骏马描述他愉快的家和好心的主人时说。“自由!在我生命的头4年,我曾拥有那么广阔的田野,我可以在那儿全速奔驰——没有缰绳,没有嚼口,也没有眼罩。现在,除了有活儿干的时候,我得日夜呆在马厩里”。

在19世纪70年代,有很多活儿要马来干——在各种天气中,拉着各种车子穿过拥挤的城市,走过乡村的小道。

黑骏马受过良好的训练。他知道他永不能踢、咬或是逃跑,永远都得服从命令,不管多累多饿。他总是举止得体,但是当他从一个主人被卖到另一个主人,他懂得了一匹马的一生是多么艰难,某些人又是多么愚蠢和多么冷酷……

作者简介:安娜·塞维尔于1820年生于诺福克,于1878年去世。出于对虐待动物的强烈不满,她写下了《黑骏马》,以说服人们对马仁慈一些。这是她身染重病的时候花了6年的时间写的,也是她写的唯一的一本书。本书出版后不久她就去世了,从那时以来这本书销售了3,000多万本。
