In Morocco


In Morocco is Edith Wharton's classic account of her journey to Morocco in the final days of World War I. From Rabat and Fez to Moulay Idriss and Marrakech, Wharton explored the country and its people as research for this book, which she hoped (correctly) would prove invaluable to travellers following in her footsteps. Her descriptions of the places she visited - mosques, palaces, ruins, markets and harems - are typically observant and full of colour and spirit.

This is a wonderful account by one of the most celebrated novelists and travel writers of the 20th century and a fascinating portrayal of an extraordinary country.
