Chapter please?

chapter five

Kino's sense of outrage, the murder, and his subsequent fear of being tracked cause him to be weak.... he is afraid, and to Kino, fear makes one not a man. Juana's encouragement and wise words make Kino think.... he calms himself down, faces the reality, and once again.... he sees himself as a man.

Kino drew a great breath and fought off his weakness. "No," he said. "You are right." And his will hardened and he was a man again.
