AUTHOR OF THE ALCHEMIST
From the #1 bestselling author of The Alchemist
comes an inspiring story about a young man seeking wisdom from an elder, and the practical
lessons imparted along the way
In The Archer we meet Tetsuya, a man once famous for his
prodigious gift with a bow and arrow but who has since retired from public life, and the boy who comes searching
for him. The boy has many questions, and in answering them Tetsuya illustrates the way of the bow and the tenets of
a meaningful life. Paulo Coelho’s story suggests that living without a connection between action and soul cannot fulfil, that a life constricted by a fear of rejection or failure is not a life worth living. Instead one must take risks, build courage,
and embrace the unexpected journey fate has to offer.
With the wisdom, generosity, simplicity, and grace that have made him an international bestseller, Paulo Coelho provides
the framework for a rewarding life: hard work, passion, purpose, thoughtfulness, the willingness to fail, and the
urge to make a difference.
