The Red Pony by John Steinbeck 1945 First Illustrated Edition Viking Press

Free Shipping!



The Red Pony tells the story of a boy 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, a hot-tempered pony his father gives him.

The Red Pony is an excellent addition to your vintage John Steinbeck collection or home library.       


The book The Red Pony is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the stains on the cover as shown in the photos.

Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.
