The Pearl


Just watched La Perla written by Steinbeck made in 1947. I am not the best in understanding Spanish but followed it along as best I could.
Interesting.

The Pearl


Where did you find this jewel?
I'd love to see it.

Steinbeck's 'The Pearl'


Here's a thread from 2009 that has The Pearl included with a few other 'Baja legends.' A light, but great read about man's nature.
