The Alchemist, written by Paulo Coelho was about a young boy who traveled Spain as a shepherd before traveling Africa searching for a treasure, or his Personal Legend.The boy encounters many difficulties on his path, but overcomes them all with help from several different people.He learns to communicate with nature by reading omens and listening to his heart and in turn he becomes an alchemist and achieves his Personal Legend.He also finds his treasure along the way and ends up being a wealthy young man.
