Cultural wars: School and society in the conservative restoration — Pedagogy of the city. The novel begins with Santiago sleeping under a sycamore tree near a church sacristy.
He dreams about the Egyptian pyramids, and in his dream, he is told by a young boy that he must travel to Egypt in order to unearth a hidden treasure. Santiago, seeking clarification about the dream, speaks to an old woman who informs him that the dream is prophetic and he must pursue it.
Santiago seems wary, as he is currently happily enjoying the life of a shepherd. But then he meets Melchizedek, the King of Salem. Melchizedek educates Santiago about good and bad omens and tells him that it is his duty to pursue his Personal Legend. The king provides Santiago with two stones to help interpret omens, Urim and Thummim. Santiago then proceeds to sell his stock and download a boat ticket to Tangier in Northern Africa.
There, he encounters misfortune when a thief steals all his money, so almost immediately, Santiago considers giving up. He begins to look for a job so that he can save enough money for a ticket home. He finds work in a crystal shop, and after 11 months of work, he is unsure about what he should do.
He has made a significant amount of money, so he could return home to Andalusia and download more sheep than he had before. Or he could join a caravan across the Sahara in pursuit of his Personal Legend. Upon choosing the latter, Santiago meets and Englishman who is attempting to learn the secret of alchemy — the conversion of any metal into gold. The Englishman is travelling to meet a famous alchemist near an oasis along the way.
Upon arriving at the oasis, Santiago meets a girl named Fatima and falls in love.
