Summary
Ramon Salazar knows that someday he will become a partner with his father, pearling in the waters off Baja California. But at sixteen, he's more interested in pearling alone. Ramon wants to find the Pearl of Heaven, for with it comes untold riches. But what Ramon doesn't realize is that the pearl brings more than riches. It brings danger, jealousy and even death. He must ask himself: how much is the pearl really worth?
