This translation of O Diario de um Mago , first published in 1987, offers insight into the popular Brazilian author's pilgrimage. Coelho relates the tests he endures while seeking ordination as a Master in the Order of RAM, a Spanish society founded in 1492. As he seeks his Sword (symbol of knowledge) along the 830 kilometers of the Road to Santiago, ancient Spanish route of pilgrims, his guide Petrus journeys along with him, providing exercises that help him understand what the pilgrimage teaches and how it is meant to test his patience, strength, and ability to adapt. The pilgrimage makes an exciting tale, and sidebars present exercises that can be used for personal enrichment.
