The Pearl "based on an old Mexican folktale, this is the deeply moving story of the great pearl, how it was discovered, and how it - along with the dreams it represented - was lost. It is the story, too, of a family - the special solidarity of a man, a woman, and their child."

The Red Pony - "On a ranch in the California mountains, a young boy finds both joy and sorrow in taking responsibility for his horse. The memorable characters include the boys inpatient father; his grandfather, once 'the leader of the people'; and the hired hand whom the boy believes to be invincible."
