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.

Both these gifts bring joy to Jodi's life - but tragedy soon follows.

As Jodi begins to learn the harsh lessons of life and death, he starts to understand what growing-up and becoming an adult really means.

The Originals are the pioneers of fiction for young adults.

From political awakening, war and unrequited love to addiction, teenage pregnancy and nuclear holocaust, The Originals confront big issues and articulate difficult truths.
