"From generation to generation of the Black Beauty line, it was the duty of the first foal born each year to pass along his or her history.  And I was the first-born foal of my year.  Beauty told his story (which some of you have possibly heard) to better the lot of horses.  I offer my story for the same reason."

So begins the story of Beauty's Son, a contemporary retelling of Black Beauty, a moving account of the hugely varied life of a handsome black horse named Beauty's Son.

Son experiences good owners and bad, and befriends an array of horses, including the fiery chestnut mare, Respect; the wise former dressage champion, Synchronicity; and the street-savvy Belgian Draft, Tom.  Son's incredible journey is a path of lessons, awe, and danger, as he becomes a dressage horse, a show hunter, a jumper, a lesson horse, a New York City carriage horse, and a rental hack.  Through it all this sensitive, intelligent horse tries to trust his human owners and trainers, and hopes his trust has not been misplaced.
