Literature: The Pearl
A 1947 novella by John Steinbeck.

The Pearl is the story of Kino, a poor diver. Kino's son, Coyotito, is stung by a scorpion. In order to pay the doctor to cure him, Kino goes diving for pearls. (It's his job anyway, but it's got extra urgency now.) He eventually finds the Pearl of the World, but it brings him nothing but trouble.

A Spanish-language Film of the Book was released, also in 1947.
