Tales of Power
Simon and Schuster, 1974 - Hallucinogenic drugs and religious experience - 287 pages
"In this astonishing, luminous and terrifying work, Carlos Castaneda at last completes the long journey into the world of sorcery that began with his now-legendary meeting with don Juan ... In a sense, Castaneda's three earlier books, each of them the story of a triumphant and daring journey into the unknown, have been merely the long pereparation for Tales of Power, in which don Juan's task of educating Castaneea, of making him 'a man of knowledge' and 'a man of power, ' is brought to an unexpected conclusion in a series of dazzling tricks, visions and lessons, ending in an explanation which is at once an initiation and a deeply moving farewell"--Cover.
