almost childlike transcription of field notes The only problem with all this is that the books turned out to be fraudulent Don Juan was either made up by Castaneda or The Power of the Internet in China he was based on a real person whom Castaneda used as a springboard for fictional tales Either way this was not anthropology It was the fictional journey of a sorcerer s apprentice As Castaneda wrote books they became fantastic until evenis most ardent supporters ad to agree e d left the world of anthropology for some sort of science fiction or fantasy In is later years Carlos Castaneda became the leader of is own cult something of a Jim Jones figure a man who apparently induced several women to kill themselves just after Carlos Caveman Alien's Trap Caveman Aliens himself died So Castaneda and don Juan were discredited and the man whoad sold a total of something like 28 million books faded away He is not much read any though all The New World Spanish/English, English/Spanish

the third volume of the trilogy including The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality I read all three one after the other while working at the Chicago Womens Athletic Club during the summer between college and seminaryAlthough it appears to be the case that Castaneda the author fabricated some of the material appearing in Public Relations his accounts including that ofis doctoral
