About The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho:
A beloved international bestseller, The Alchemist has enchanted and inspired readers for generations.
Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd, is content to spend his days tending his sheep, but when he begins having recurring dreams about finding treasure at the base of the Egyptian pyramids, he understands that he must leave the comforts of home to follow his heart and live his destiny. Along the way, he meets many people who help him in his journey and he learns to interpret the omens that guide him on his path to self-discovery.
Combining mysticism, legends, dreams, history, and adventure, The Alchemist is much more than a story about a man's search for treasure—it is a fable about destiny, finding one's path in life, and pursuing it wholeheartedly.
