Storyboard Text

  • "Kino's hand went forward very slowly, very smoothly. The thorned tail jerked upright. And at that moment the laughing Coyotito shook the rope and the scorpion fell. Kino's hand leaped to catch it, but it fell past his fingers, fell on the shoulder, landed and struck."
  • "Kino had wondered often at the iron in his patient, fragile wife... In the canoe she was like a strong man. And now she did a most surprising thing."
  • "The doctor," she said. "Go to get the doctor."
  • "It is a little Indian with a baby. He says a scorpion stung it." The doctor put his cup down gently before he let his anger rise. "Have I nothing better to do than cure insect bites for 'little Indians'? I am a doctor, not a veterinary..." "The doctor has gone out," he said (servant). "He was called to a serious case."
  • "Kino and Juana came slowly down to the beach and to Kino's canoe, which was the one thing of value he owned in the world. It was very old. Kino's grandfather had brought it from Nayarit, and he had given it to Kino's father, and so it had come to Kino."
  • "The shell was partly open, for the overhang protected this ancient oyster, and in the lip-like muscle Kino saw a ghostly gleam, and then the shell closed down."
  • And Juan Tomas, who squatted on Kino's right hand because he was his brother, asked, 'What will you do now that you have become a rich man?...' 'My son will go to school,' he said, and the neighbors were hushed."
