Kino, Juana, and Coyotito live happily in La Parez, Mexico in the early nineteen hundreds.
Coyotito gets stung by a scorpion and Juana calls a doctor. Kino hears The Song of Evil.
Everybody in the city found out about Kino's Pearl of the World when he tries to sell it the day after he finds it.
A man tries to kill Kino and the pearl gets thrown away and Kino kills the man. A stranger then ransacked his home, burned it, and put a hole in his canoe so he wouldnt be able to go anywhere.
Kino tries to kill the three trakers that were following them but Coyotito started to cry in the cave that he and Juana were in. The tracker that was watching for danger heard and shot a shot into the cave killing Coyotito. In that moment Kino stabbed the man witht he gun and shot the other two trackers.
Kino realizes that the pearl has bought him and his family bad luck and he and Juana are sad about losing their son. He decides to throw the peral into the ocean where it came from.
