The book includes two works by John Steinbeck - "Of Mice and Men" and "The Pearl".
"Of Mice and Men" is a compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their place in an unforgiving world. Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie have nothing in the world except each other and a dream - a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Eventually they find work on a ranch in California's Salinas Valley, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength. Tackling universal themes such as the friendship of a shared vision, and giving voice to America's lonely and dispossessed, "Of Mice and Men" has proved one of Steinbeck's most popular works, achieving success as a novel, a Broadway play and three acclaimed films.
"The Pearl", a story of classic simplicity, based on a Mexican folk tale, explores the secrets of man's nature, greed, the darkest depths of evil, and the luminous possibilities of love.

Then, on a day like any other, Kino emerges from the sea with a pearl as large as a sea gull's egg, as "perfect as the moon". With the pearl comes hope, the promise of comfort and of security...
