Journey to Ixtlan is the third book by Carlos Castaneda. It was published as a work of non-fiction by Simon & Schuster in 1972. As with Castaneda's other books, the claim of non-fiction has been called into question by academics and readers. Responding to their review of Journey to Ixtlan, Joyce Carol Oates wrote a letter published in the The New York Times Book Review expressing her bewilderment at their review of what she saw as an obvious fiction.
