In my reviews I try neither to persuade nor to dissuade others. I believe the art of reading is a very personal experience and that my opinion should not intrude upon others enjoyment. I merely state how I felt while reading and I will allow others to decide for themselves. This is why I will not present a play-by-play description. I will only offer a few basic details to help you decide if what I present is worth your time.
The Red Pony - John Steinbeck It is a good series of short stories, enriching but not happy. Typical of Steinbeck. :)

I felt Steinbeck's message of a boyhood-to-man transition during the depression era translated better without the Grandfather story. While the Grandfather story is entertaining and important to The Red Pony's central message I think the tale has a stronger emotional impact without it.
