Description

The first book in Carlos Castaneda's spiritual journey into the world of sorcery...
In 1960 Carlos Castaneda first met don Juan, a Yaqui Indian feared and shunned by the ordinary folk of the American Southwest because of his unnatural powers. During the next five years don Juan's arcane knowledge led Castaneda into a world of beauty and terror, ruled by concepts far beyond those of Western civilization. Using psychedelic drugs - peyote, jimson weed and a mushroom called 'humito' - Castaneda lived through encounters with disembodied spirits, shamans in the form of huge wolves, and death in the shape of silver crows. Finally, after a night of utter terror in which he knew that his life was threatened by forces which he still cannot fully explain, he gave up his struggle to become a Man of Knowledge.
The Teachings of Don Juan is the story of Carlos Castaneda's extraordinary experiences.

Reviews

"It's impossible to view the world in quite the same way after reading him ... If Castaneda is correct, there is another world, a sometimes beautiful and sometimes frightening world, right before our eyes at this moment - if only we could see." --- Chicago Tribune
