Cannery Row Chapter 6 Summary

  • Doc and Hazel (one of Mack's boys) are collecting starfish at The Great Tide Pool, an awesome place.
  • We learn how Hazel got his name. The two talk about a few other people they know, and about why stink bugs keep their butts in the air.
  • It's good, down-home conversation.
  • When Doc suggests that they're praying, Hazel freaks out a little.
