“A universal quest toward an expanded view of life.” (Dan Millman, author of THE WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR)
“The keys to self-mastery...wrapped in suspense and adventure.” (Body Mind Spirit)
“Among Latin American writers only Columbia’s Gabriel Garcia Marquez is more widely read than Brazil’s Paulo Coelho.” (The Economist)
Here Paulo Coelho details his journey across Spain along the legendaryroad of San Tiago, which pilgrims have travelled since Middle Ages. On this contemporary quest, he encounters a Chaucerian variety of mysterious guides and devilish opponents and learns to understand the nature of truth through the simplicity of life. The Pilgrimage holds an important place in Paulo Coelho's literary canon. His first book, it not only paved the way for his phenomenal novel The Alchemist , but it also fully expresses his humanist philosophy and the depth of his unique search for meaning.
