The Pearl

Written by John Steinbeck

Part of the The Originals Series

The Pearl Synopsis

Kino is a desperately poor Mexican-pearl diver. But when he finds 'The Pearl of the World' he believes that his life will be magically transformed. Obsessed by his dreams, Kino is blind to the greed, fear and even violence the pearl arouses in his neighbours - and himself. A haunting and timeless tale of wealth and the evil it can bring.
