Description

Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Nobel Prize for Literature, John Steinbeck is in the first rank of American authors. One of his earliest works, The Red Pony is a moving coming-of-age novel. Hardened by years on a California ranch, young Jody Tiflin is ready to assume more adult responsibilities. His father gives him a pony-under strict instructions to manage the animal's care. But Jody soon learns that the first steps toward maturity can lead directly down the cruel path of fate.

Professional reviews

"In four short episodes, Steinbeck provides snapshots of American life in the West in the early twentieth century. Narrator Frank Muller's voice is as tough as the way of life depicted. The connected stories feature a 10-year-old boy named Jody, who lives on a California ranch in a time when parents were called "Sir" and "Ma'am" and their word was law. Muller perfectly conveys the dramas of life on the ranch, from Jody's excitement at being given a pony to the complexity of emotions he feels as he learns the hard lessons of life and death so prevalent in the stories. Muller's voice adds an extra edge that makes Jody's harsh coming-of-age experiences live on in today's world. M.M.G. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
