The Pearl Study Guide questions, Chapter 2
1. The people learned not believe their eyes, because they could not
tell what was really there. They expected all places to be like this.
2. Kino's canoe was old and water proof. It was a family heirloom. Kino's
pride in the boat was acceptable because not only is it an heirloom,
it represents his living, and it is part of the family.
3. Juana is dissatisfied by her own method because it was free and lacked
the doctor's authority. Juana's reaction to the appearance of the scorpion
was fear for her first born. Then, after the sting, she wanted to take
Coyotito to the doctor. He would not treat it.
This demonstrated not only a war between culture's, but a war between

his oxygen supply.
5. Kino was very happy about finding the pearl. He thought he could

free and trying to change his social class.
6. Kino's mind created dreams in the pearl of what it could bring him,
just as he heard the songs. He believed the pearl could fulfill his

When Coyotito was stung by a scorpion and Kino and Juana went to the doctor, most of the village followed them. The family was proven to be important because it was all Kino and Juana had. The poverty was obvious, because, when Kino had to save his son, all he had were a few worthless pearls. 2. In the morning when Kino awakens, he he

A Lesson From OliverA Lesson From Oliver by David Jorgensen Like any other morning I was up at four, the day Oliver met with his violent death. At four in the morning the grass is wet. Now, it\'s still wet at 6 a.m. and even at seven, and these tend to be the hours of choice for most people wishing to appreciate the phenomenon of grass wetness.
