A Tragedy at Home
The Luckiest Find
Kino, Juana, and their baby, Coyotito are introduced as the main characters. They live in La Paz in Baja California. Coyotito is stung by a scorpion so Kino and Juana go to the doctor. The doctor refuses to treat Coyotito since Kino and Juana have no money.
Kino goes out in search of a pearl so that he can pay for the doctor. Kino finds a massive pearl. News of Kino's new find spreads rapidly to everyone from Kino's neighbors, to the rich people and the church.
Kino says that he and Juana will be married in the church, they will get new clothes, a new harpoon, a rifle, and that Coyotito will be taught to write and understand math. However, Juana thinks that the pearl will only bring bad things upon her family.
