5: John Steinbeck (1902-1968) was born in Salinas, California. He wrote a total of twenty-seven books, including sixteen novels, six non-fiction books, and five collections of short stories. He got his inspiration for writing by working on ranches with migrant workers. He attended Stanford University in 1919, where he enrolled in literature and writing classes until 1925. He did not receive a degree while he was in college. His first novel was Cup of Gold, which was published in 1929. He was married and divorced twice.

8: The baby got stung by the scorpion. The family went to the doctor for help, but he said no. Kino got mad and slammed his hand on the gate to the doctor's house. | CHAPTER 1
9: Kino found the pearl. He was the envy of his "village". He brought the doctor in to have a look at the baby in hopes that the doctor will cure the baby, but the doctor just tricks Kino and his family. | Chapter 2
10: Chapter 3 | The pearl brought evil to the house. Kino had killed a man and was forced to leave his home and loved ones behind.
11: Chapter 4 | Kino did not sell the pearl. He got attached while trying to defend himself and his pearl.
12: Kino ran from the village. He was followed by trackers that the doctor sent to watch him. He tried to lose them twice, but sadly they keep on his trail. | Chapter 5
13: Coyotito gets killed by the trackers when they mistake his cries for a coyote. Kino killed the trackers. He gets rid of the pearl by throwing it into the ocean. | Chapter 6
14: I feel that the moral of this story is that a person cannot trust his or her vision. I say this because something may appear to be glamorous when in reality it is just made to look that way. In the same way that Kino thought the pearl was a great thing and such a treasure, it was a danger and threat to his family and himself. To Kino, it was worth lots of money, but in reality it was dull and useless.
