Description

‘A little masterpiece’ New York Times

Jody Tiflin is a ten-year-old boy, living on his father’s ranch. One day his father brings home a small pony. He’s Jody’s, if the boy will learn to feed, clean, stable and care for him. But Jody learns, through the colt, and through his other adventures on the ranch, that with responsibility can come sacrifice and pain. Joy may swiftly turn to tragedy. And he also discover that the simplicities of childhood must eventually turn into the complications of adulthood.

The Red Pony is Steinbeck’s brilliant, and sometimes brutal, celebration of adolescence, with a stunning new cover by renowned artist Bijou Karman.
