The Red Pony
by John Steinbeck

Tough-O-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(3) Base Camp

The Red Pony's not exactly a bucking bronco. It's got simple language, clear sentences, and not a whole lot of confusion. It's Jody's emotional and mental world that might trip you up, because it can be hard to pinpoint just what he's feeling. But trust your gut and trust Shmoop. We promise: you'll be fine.
