The masterpiece of Steinbeck's later years--a powerful and vastly ambitious novel that is at once a family saga and a modern retelling of the Book of Genesis. In his journal, John Steinbeck called East of Eden the "first book," and indeed it has the primordial power and simplicity of myth. Set in the rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families - the Trasks and the Hamiltons - whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel.

When the news of Kino's great find--the "Pearl of the World"--spreads through the small town, no one suspects its power to deceive, to corrupt, to destroy. Like his father and grandfather before him, Kino is a poor diver, gathering pearls from the Gulf beds that once brought great wealth to the Kings of Spain and now provide Kino, Juanna, and their infant son with meager subsistence. Then, on a day like any other, Kino emerges from the sea with a pearl as large as sea gull's egg, as "perfect as the moon." With the pearl comes hope, the promise of comfort and of security.

A deep vocabulary is critical for good reading comprehension, higher-level writing skills, and high standardized test placement. Multiple-choice vocabulary lessons often don't give students the skills they need to figure out words in context; however, Vocabulary: A Novel Solution is a literature-based series that actively engages students in the learning process.

In each book, students begin with 25 vocabulary words (taken from the literature) that they're likely to encounter in other contexts. Before reading the book, students take a pretest and record the results in "Word Logs," which require figuring out meanings from context, using a dictionary, and other reading skills. Students will also study the root words, prefixes, and suffixes of each new word. A variety of reinforcement activities are included; students conclude with a post-test.

This workbook is designed be used alongside the book "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck, which is not included and must be obtained separately. Designed for grades 6-12; parents may wish to evaluate the literature for content for younger students as many of the texts in this series are assigned in high school.
