It 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.

Like the one-time bestseller Jonathan Livingston Seagull. The Alchemist presents a simple fable, based on simple truths and places it in a highly unique situation. Though we may sniff a bestselling formula, it is certainly not a new one. Even the ancient tribal storytellers knew that this is the most successful method of entertaining an audience while slipping in a lesson or two. Brazilian storyteller Paulo Coehlo introduces Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who one night dreams of a distant treasure in the Egyptian pyramids. And so he’s off: leaving Spain to literally follow his dream.
