Coyotito having a nice day outside with his mother and father, Kino and Juana.
I have better things to do that treat a 'little Indian' baby, i am no vet and you have no money like always.
Our child needs treatment for a scorpion bite.
As Juana wraps up Coyotito and puts him back in his hanging box, Juana sees movement out the corner of her eye and looks to see it is a scorpion crawling down the rope. The scorpion bites Coyotito as the song of the enemy begins to roar.
Kino and Juana take Coyotito to the doctor for treatment.
I really hope I find this pearl!
The doctor turns down the family for Coyotito's treatment because they are poor.
Juana wades in the water and gathers some brown seaweed and made a flat damp poultice with it.
Kino and Juana go on a search for the pearl so they can sell it to get money for Coyotito's bite, his education and for them to get married.
