Reviews for The Black Pearl
RatingComments
5On the surface, this is a story set in Baja, Mexico, about a pearl diving family. The reader learns much about this industry and the religion and superstition so prevalent among the natives there. However, the greed that overcomes many of the characters, and the consequences of their greed, can happen anywhere. Those who lust for fortune often pay the price. In The Black Pearl the reader must decide whether the Manta Diablo is real, or a superstition. A must-read for grades 4 through 8 (although many adults will appreciate and enjoy this story).
