The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the international phenomenon about a shepherd boy who learns how to live his dreams--includes an inspiring new introduction by the author.

The Alchemist has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its powerful simplicity and inspiring wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way. But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasure found within. Lush, evocative, and deeply humane, his story is an eternal testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts.
