Masterful short stories by Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck celebrate the spirit and courage of adolescence and rural America, part of the Originals collection, Penguin's essential modern classics for YA readers. Masterful linked short stories by Nobel prizewinner John Steinbeck, author of The Grapes of Wrath. The Red Pony is one of The Originals from Penguin - iconic, outspoken, first. Young Jody Tiflin lives on his father's California ranch. He is thrilled when his father gives him a red pony, and later promises him the colt of a bay mare.
