If you want to lear about yourself, start by exploring the world around you.

Drawing on the rich experience of his own life, bestselling author Paulo Coelho takes us back in time to relive the dreams of a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order. In Hippie, he tells the story of Paulo, a young, skinny Brazilian man with a goatee and long, flowing hair, who wants to become a writer and sets off on a journey in search of a deeper meaning for his life: first on the famous “Death Train” to Bolivia, then on to Peru, later hitchhiking through Chile and Argentina.

Paulo’s travels take him farther to the famous Dam Square in Amsterdam, filled with young people wearing vibrant clothes, burning incense, and playing music, while they discuss sexual liberation and the search for inner truth.

There he meets Karla, a Dutch woman in her twenties who has been waiting to find the ideal companion to accompany her on the fabled hippie trail to Nepal. She convinces Paulo to join her on a trip aboard the Magic Bus that travels across Europe and Central Asia to Kathmandu. They embark on the journey in the company of intriguing companions, each of whom has a story to tell.

As they travel together, Paulo and Karla explore their relationship: a life-defining love story that awakens them on every level and leads to choices and decisions that will set the course for their lives thereafter.

 

Paulo Coelho’s life remains the primary source of inspiration for his books. He has flirted with death, escoped madness, dallled with drugs, withstood torture, experimented with magic and alchemy, studied phllosophy and religion, read voraciously, lost and recovered his faith, and experienced the pain and pleasure of love. In searching for his own place in the world, he has discovered answers for the challenges that everyone faces. He believes that within ourselves we have the necessary strength to find our own destiny.

His books have been translated into 81 languages and have sold more than 225 million coples in more than 170 countries. His 1988 novel, The Alchemist, has sold more than 85 million coples and has been cited as on Inspiration by people as diverse as Molala Yousafzal and Pharrell Williams.

He is a member of the Drozilian Academy of Letters and has received the Chevalier de l’Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur. In 2007, he was nomed @ United Nations Messenger of Peace.
