Stardust is a clever and handsome black horse who is taught various tricks by his keen young gypsy owner. He remembers these right to his last home because, like his famous sire Black Beauty, he goes through a series of owners and is put to various uses. Here is a well-written recreation of the life of a horse in the days when society depended on them for transport. Written very much in the style of Anna Sewell.
Horse-loving young people or those interested in history will enjoy this tale.
