Raised on a ranch in northern California, Jody is well-schooled in the hard work and demands of a rancher's life. He is used to the way of horses, too; but nothing has prepared him for the special connection he will forge with Gabilan, the hot-tempered pony his father gives him. With Billy Buck, the hired hand, Jody tends and trains his horse, restlessly anticipating the moment he will sit high upon Gabilan's saddle. But when Gabilan falls ill, Jody discovers there are still lessons he must learn about the ways of nature and, particularly, the ways of man.

    This was the first book of Steinbeck’s I’ve ever read. My grandpa found a copy and gave it to me years ago but I never read it until two summers ago. I remember finishing the book and thinking that it was rather strange--the way the chapters (there are four of them) didn’t really have too much to do with each other or the red pony itself—but nonetheless, I loved this book. : )
