    Carlos Castanada was a student of anthropology when he met Don Juan Matus, a Yaqui shaman and the inspiration for Castanada’s The Teachings of Don Juan. In this controversial work, Castanada relays his experiences being challenged by his mentor on his perception of the world and all living things in it.

    Story
    If you could sum up Journey to Ixtlan in three words, what would they be?

    This classic Castaneda story, the first which doesn't feature psychedelic drugs, holds up well in time. I first read it 40 years ago. Immediately, after listening to Journey to Ixtlan, I tried to find the audiobook version of Tales Of Power, the book that follows this one, but it apparently does not exist in audio format. I would beg Luis Moreno to do this sequel, as the new generation of audiobook listeners shouldn't be tantalized with Journey To Ixtlan, salivating for more, only to find the series abruptly terminated.


    What other book might you compare Journey to Ixtlan to and why?

    Autobiography of a Yogi is the closest that comes to mind. Truly, there is little out there that compares to Castaneda's writing. He's in a class by himself.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The "hiding" of Carlos's car was a lot of fun.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I love the concept of a "Worthy Opponent," and Carlos's experiences with his.


    Any additional comments?

    Put Tales of Power into Audiobook format!
