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. \n\nEditorial Reviews\n\nReview\n"A universal quest toward an expanded view of life." -- Dan Millman, author of THE WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR\n\n"Among Latin American writers only Columbia's Gabriel Garcia Marquez is more widely read than Brazil's Paulo Coelho." -- The Economist\n\n"An exciting tale." -- Library Journal\n\n"The keys to self-mastery...wrapped in suspense and adventure." -- Body Mind Spirit

‘His writing is like a path of energy that inadvertently leads readers to themselves, toward their mysterious and faraway souls.’ Le Figaro

‘Coelho’s writing is beautifully poetic but his message is what counts... he gives me hope and puts a smile on my face.’ Daily Express
