Raised on a ranch in northern California, Jody is well-schooled in the hard work and demands of a rancher's life.

From Our Editors

Set on a ranch in California's Salinas Valley, this engaging book tells the story of a young boy and his sorrel colt. Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck masterfully weaves together four related stories in The Red Pony, with 10-year-old Jody Tiflin threading everything together. Rich in characterization, this multifaceted novel is a warm and wise look at one boy's maturation when he realizes he is powerless to control the events of his life.
