About the Novel:
Steinbeck recalls four loosely connected episodes from his own childhood, weaving them together into an unforgettable classic. Growing up on a remote ranch in California, ten-year-old Jody Tiflin’s life is forever changed when his father gives him a beautiful red pony. With the help of his father’s hired hand—Billy Buck—Jody commits himself whole-heartedly to the raising of this wonderful colt. When the colt grows ill and dies, Jody’s world is shattered, as is his faith in Billy Buck, who had assured the boy that the pony would recover. Jody’s father promises him a colt that will soon be born to their mare, but dies at the birth. The stories weave together in effortless fashion, chronicling the coming-of-age-story of young Jody Tiflin.
