Description
For the diver Kino, finding a magnificent pearl means the promise of a better life for his impoverished family. Sadly, his dream blinds him to the greed and suspicions that the pearl arouse in him and his neighbors; even his wife cannot temper his obsession or stem the events that ultimately lead to tragedy. In this retelling of an old Mexican tale of a pearl that is found and then lost, John Steinbeck uses Kino and his wife to illustrate the fall from innocence of people who believe that wealth erases all problems—a simple tale about simple people, related with warmth and generosity.
