From the dust jacket-
"Carlos Castenada's initiation into the process of 'seeing' in the arid hills of northwestern Mexico provides a terrifying and intensely dramatic account of a spiritual adventure, a work of literature that is once the discovery of a hitherto unrecorded body of wisdom and knowledge and the story of a remarkable and shattering personal experience."
