I am sorry my friend. This pearl is like fool's gold
I can give you, say, a thousand pesos.
It is worth fifty thousand, you know it. You want to cheat me.
It is the Pearl of the World! No-one has ever seen such a pearl.
[Kino] struck [Juana] in the face...and kicked her in the side.
Greedy fingers went through [Kino's] clothes... searched him... the pearl.
The old life was gone forever. A dead man in the path and Kino's knife, dark bladed beside him.
A tall flame leaped into the dark with a crackling roar, and a tall edifice of fire lighted the pathway... It was [their] brush house
Will they follow us? Do you think try will ty to find us?
[We will go] to the north. [There] are cities in the north
They will try. Whoever finds us will take the pearl. Oh, they will try.
[Kino] grasped the rifle,...aimed and fired between the eyes
[Kino's] great knife...bit through neck and deep into chest.
Kino was a terrible machine.
[Kino] whirled and struck the head of the...man
[Kino and Juana] came along from the rutted country road. And Juana carried her shawl...and in it was a small limp heavy bundle. The shawl was crusted with dried blood, and the bundle swayed as they walked.
In the surface of the pearl [Kino] saw Coyotito lying in the little cave with the top of his head shot away. Kino...flung the pearl with all his might [into the sea].
