Forty years ago, University of California anthropology graduate student Carlos Castanda chronicled his revelatory dialogues with don Juan Matus, a Yaqui Indian shaman from Sonora, Mexico that inspired a generation of seekers. The Teachings of Don Juan presented controversial alternative ways of looking at the world that, whether read as ethnographic fact or creative fiction, reverberated for its readers and remain controversial to this day.Item #901204
