Summary: "Santiago is well educated and had intended to be a priest.But a desire for travel . . . prompted him to become a shepherd instead. He's contented.But then twice he dreams about hidden treasure, and a seer tells him to follow the dream's instructions: go to Egypt to the pyramids, where he will finda treasure. . . . Santiago makes it to the pyramids and there learns where his fortune is actually to be found."(Booklist)First published in Brazil in 1991.
The runaway bestseller and beloved book by Latin America's most popular author. "A sweetly exotic tale for young and old alike."
--Publishers Weekly "A magical little volume."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"A wise and inspiring fable about the pilgrimage that life should be."
--M. Scott Peck, M.D., author ofThe Road Less Traveled
Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist is such a book. With over a million and a half copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has already established itself as a modern classic, universally admired. Paulo Coelho's charming fable, now available in English for the first time, will enchant and inspire an even wider audience of readers for generations to come. The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist. The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.
