DREAMS ARE MADE TO BE FOLLOWED. LIFE IS MEANT TO BE LIVED. SOME BOOKS ARE MEANT TO BE READ, LOVED AND PASSED ON. THE ALCHEMIST IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS. It is the story of a shepherd boy from the Spanish province of Andalusia who dreams of travelling the world in search of a treasure as desirable as any ever found. From his home he journeys to the exotic markets of North Africa and then into the Egyptian desert, where a fateful encounter with the alchemist awaits him … It is an unforgettable story about the essential wisdom of listening to our heart and, above all, following our dreams.
