Description - The Pearl by Mr John Steinbeck

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 the potential dangers of unexpected wealth, by Nobel prizewinner John Steinbeck, author of The Grapes of Wrath.
