Chapter 1 Pascual Duarte was born in a village in the province of Badajoz, about two miles from Almendralejo. 55 years-This town was very hot and sunny. Their houses were almost all white. There were houses richer and poorer ones. The Don Jesus was two floors and very nice, always full of flowers. Pascual was the narrow one-story, as befitted his position. He had a very nice light, heat in winter was overnight. On the walls were photographs, calendars ... and the kitchen was a China cabinet with crockery. He had a room and two bedrooms. Beside the house was a block, which had a donkey. Behind it was a pen, and behind it, a channel which would catch eels. When Pascal came to hunt (as I was) sitting on a large rock that was at a crossroads. Chapter 2Pascal's father was named Esteban Duarte Diniz, and it was Portuguese. He was tall and stout, and wore a mustache with the ends pulled down. He had been in prison for smuggling. Always stuck to his wife and son. His mother was tall and thin and always wore a bow.

A July or August's sister was born Pascual, Rosario. Chapter 3 A Rosario had a deep drawer wrapped in strips of cotton. After three or four days unwrapped and washed. It took very little vice of drinking, and at 14 he left home. She moved to Trujillo, home of Elvis. After five months back, and I had fevers.
