Description

When Kino, an Indian pearl-diver, finds 'the Pearl of the world', he believes that his life will be magically transformed. He will marry Juana in church and their little boy, Coyotito, will attend school. Obsessed by his dreams, Kino is blind to the greed, fear and violence the pearl arouses in him and his neighbours. Written with lyrical simplicity "The Pearl" explores the secretive nature of man, the depths of evil within, and the consequences of rebellion.
