Summary:This volume shows the reader the means by which a "man of power"
sees, as opposed to merely looking, and how by his concentrated
"seeing" he can, indeed must, "stop the world." In it, Carlos
Castaneda describes the lessons, the omens, the exercises of the will
and body, the arduous trials and tests, the simple yet mysterious
demonstrations, the extraordinary visions and experiences by which
don Juan, his mentor and friend, prepares him for the task of
perceiving things as they are, instead of describing them by the
words, conventions and standards of conventional, a priori ideas and
language. Here, in the high mountains and in the bright arid desert,
Castaneda reaches for power in a series of startling encounters with
the unknown--a confrontation with death and the past in the form of
an albino falcon, with the twilight wind, with a flesh-and-blood
mountain lion, with a mountain fog--and learns the techniques, the
concentration, the compassion of the hunter, the man who is "without
routines, free, fluid."
