Jody Tiflin lives on a ranch in the Californian mountains and, like most ten-year-old boys, has the urge for rebellion as well as the need to be loved. His father gives him a red pony and he discovers both joy and sorrow as he takes responsibility for his horse. Jody learns something of life and death and comes to understand that adults too are fallible.
