(From the publisher):
After thirty years wandering in the desert, Amado returns home after being banished by a government that considers his ideas about religion and the state to be dangerous and subversive. Amado finds his people living in squalor and violence. Now called "Jalamanta," he is a man transformed; through suffering he has attained wisdom, through introspection he has acquired insight. Jalamanta teaches that the way to salvation is to follow the Path of the Sun, to see its light, and to understand one's connection to the Universal Spirit. Forced to live in the dark shadow of a regime determined to repress him, Jalamanta carries a message of hope for his people - and for us all.
