1. What did the author know about Caballo Blanco and the Tarahumara when he set out on his journey to seek them?
Caballo Blanco had come to Mexico and had gone into the wild, impenetrable Copper Canyons years ago where he lived with the Tarahumara. This tribe was known for its health, serenity, and love of running. The people in the tribe kept to themselves and lived high up in the cliffs where no one could see them unless they wanted to be found.
2. What were the author's impressions upon first meeting Caballo Blanco in Chapter 1?
As the author was pulled back to consciousness, he realized that he was hearing the voice of Caballo Blanco. He didn't look at all like anything that the author expected and he thought he had the wrong man until the man responded to his name. When the author said that he had been looking for him, Caballo Blanco looked as if he wanted to leave.
