This is the story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who dreams of travelling the world in search of priceless treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the exotic markets of Tangiers and then into the Egyptian desert, where a fateful encounter with the Alchemist awaits him.
The Alchemist is an unforgettable novel about the essential wisdom of listening to our heart and, above all, following our dreams.
