First published in 1947, John Steinbeck's parable is a literary jewel.

Kino is a Mexican pearl-fisher in the Gulf of California. When he and his wife, Juana, have a baby, their joy is complete...until the infant is bitten by a scorpion. Kino finds a great pearl worth a fortune, far more than enough to pay the doctor needed to save the baby's life, but it brings only tragedy and evil to his family. A masterpiece of American literature.

Hi!! I read this book for my english class. We read some parts together and others by our selfs. We read the end of the book together and it was sooo sad!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!----- The description the author gave about coyotitos head being shot away was so sad and gross!!! My English teacher almost cried. But this book is based on a true story so this actually happened but in a different way to different people
