This is a story about Kino, his wife Juana and their baby Coyotito. Kino was a poor Mexican-Indian. He made his money by fishing for pearls - valuable stones found inside the shell of oysters. Kino’s life was poor and simple until he found the largest pearl in the world. He thought that the pearl would bring happiness to his family. But instead of happiness, the pearl brought fear and danger.
