Born in Salinas, California, in 1902, John Steinbeck grew up in a fertile agricultural valley about twenty-five miles from the Pacific Coast - and both valley and coast would serve as settings for some of his best fiction. In 1919 he went to Stanford University, where he intermittently enrolled in literature and writing courses until he left in 1925 without taking a degree. During the next five years he supported himself as a labourer and journalist in New York City, all the time working on his first novel, Cup of Gold (1929).

But in Steinbeck's The Red Pony we find a singular instance of the daily rounds of the farmer's life as it impinges on the felt need of a small boy to force some space for himself in the neighboring world. For whatever else this book may be, it is most assuredly a book about a boy, a caterpillar kid moreover, not a fragile adolescent butterfly, in whom we may easily recognize that embryonic barbarian who once stood in the way of our path from home.

In The Red Pony, Steinbeck perhaps most closely resembles Willa Cather, whose stories of Nebraska farmers avoid specific political and economic issues while emphasizing the hardships of the farmer's life.

In The Red Pony, Steinbeck perhaps most closely resembles Willa Cather, whose stories of Nebraska farmers avoid specific political and economic issues while emphasizing the hardships of the farmer's life, portrayed as a grim and unrelenting struggle with natural forces, a constant test of the strengths-and weaknesses-of rural people. It was a self-conscious quality that, during his last, post-World War II phase, became only more obvious, not more the rule

This story tells the life of a Northern California farm in the early 1900s, and Jody Tiflis, the farmer's son, from roughly age 10-12. It's odd that the story is called The Red Pony, because the episode of the pony only takes about half the book. But getting and caring for the pony is a seminal event in Jody's life, and one that changes him from a child into a young adult. His unquestioning adulation of Billy, the ranch hand, changes to a more mature and forgiving love. His fear of his father becomes a mature acceptance of Carl's shortcomings.
While I was hoping the story would turn out differently, this is the way things happen on a farm, even today, with or without veterinarians' help. Events have a true-to-life feel, as though most of them really happened in the author's life. The style is almost poetically beautiful. A wonderful read!

I discovered the works of John Steinbeck back in 1981-ish when I was trying to "expand my horizons" as a literate person trying to move on from shoddy works of horror, (which I still love reading) to more thought provoking and meaningful works of fiction. Of course several books by John Steinbeck were on this list of "MUST READS". Reading John for the first time was an awaking to me. I discovered that a good book was more than just being 17 and reading a story and hoping for cuss words...oh no...,as I discovered at 25, there is so much more to a good book. John became one of my favorites and I've read his works more than once. As I am now in a position to do some traveling, I began looking for was to travel and still enjoy a good book. Of course, the audiobook is perfect for this. Which brings me, finally, to The Red Ponys narrator, Frank Muller. I first heard Frank Muller as an audiobook narrator when I bought Stephen Kings Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three on Cassette for a trip from TX to MI. It was a case of, I"ll give this a try and see if if sucks or not. Let me tell you, it did not suck. Frank was the voice of Stephen King. He was also the voice for Charles Dickens and Herman Melville and Jack London and Pat Conroy. He knew how to tell a story and how to use his voice to take the listener by the hand and show what was happening. There are many good audiobook narrators, but none,(in my opinion) has ever reached the level of greatness that Frank did. That Frank is no longer with us makes me miss him more. There will be no more books read the way Frank read them. And that is the listeners loss. I am on my own quest now. And that is to find and purchase as many audiobooks narrated by Frank Muller as I can.

This review, I suppose, is about two things. The wonderful story of Jody and his initiation into the world of death, birth, and disappointment as told by John Steinbeck, and Frank Mullers interpretation of Johns short novel. If you want to read a good story, you won't be disappointed reading John Steinbecks moving tale. If you want to hear the story, find this edition read by Frank Muller. Together, John and Frank will touch your heart and make you feel joy and loss and love and hurt.

I signed on as a volunteer coach at the National Steinbeck Center’s Young Authors’ Day and learned that the 6-8 graders would be writing about the first chapter of “The Red Pony.” Yikes, it was time to re-read the short book that I hadn’t opened in many years.

Here in the Land of Steinbeck (Monterey, CA), the man is revered—and rightfully so. “The Grapes of Wrath” and “East of Eden” are beautiful novels that still move readers, decades after their publication. “Cannery Row” and “Tortilla Flat” are whimsical, yet poignant tales from a bygone era of my neighborhood.

As I re-read “The Red Pony” and thought about today’s middle schoolers, I found the story of Jody, the somewhat mischievous 10-year-old farm boy with stern parents, less than riveting. Granted, the themes of death and dying, maturing as a result of difficult experiences, of wanting to please parents and earn their love, are timeless and universal. Steinbeck wrote about them in a simple, yet profound way that continues to make this little book a classic at the middle school level. Nonetheless, I couldn’t get past visions of the 31-year-old Steinbeck, not yet a fully formed novelist, scribbling away and honing his skills for the great works to come.

Do I recommend it for middle schoolers? Definitely. Just don’t expect Jody Tiflin to grab their interest the way Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen do.

Who dares to review Steinbeck's work? Not me! I loved "The Red Pony" the first time I read it, 45 years ago. I loved it again in 2015. Some American Classics - - particularly Steinbeck - - must be read more than once, years apart, to fully internalize the art and craft.

Great gift for my daughter!

I loved this book and will probably read it again sometime. The story was simple but really warming and heartfelt. A perfect feel-good book.
Good read. A little odd that it reads as two books. Wh as t happened with the second horse? Still good.
