"I stand in portico hung with gentian-blue ipomeas ... and look out on a land of mists and mysteries; a land of trailing silver veils through which domes and minarets, mighty towers and ramparts of flushed stone, hot palm groves and Atlas snows, peer and disappear at the will of the Atlantic cloud-drifts"
A classic of travel writing, In Morocco is Edith Wharton's remarkable account of her journey to the country during World War I. With a characteristic sense of adventure, Wharton set out to explore Morocco and its people, recording her impressions and encounters. She traveled--by military jeep--to Rabat, Moulay Idriss, Fex and Marrakech, from the Atlantic coast to the high Atlas. Along the way she witnessed religious ceremonies and ritual dances, visited the opulent palaces of the Sultan and was admitted to the mysterious world of his harem. Her narrative is as rich as the souks through which she wandered, peopled with story-tellers and warriors, slaves and silk-spinners; an evocative and intimate portrait of an extraordinary country.

IN MOROCCO-LIB 4KAvis d'utilisateur - Book Verdict
During her travels in Morocco in 1917, Wharton kept a rather complete, descriptive account of her experiences. As expected of such a superbly talented author, her observations are well written and interesting. While this gives listeners a real feel for desert living and tribes, it does not include a map, which would have been helpful in following and better understanding her journey. Wharton provides some historical perspective and unusual insight into the travel of that period and into the lives of women. Her account of visits to harems provide the most educational and fascinating listening. Anna Fields reads beautifully, gliding through a great many difficult names, making only one detectable pronunciation error. Unfortunately, old travel books normally attract a rather limited audience. True armchair travelers or those with a special interest in Morocco may be interested. Libraries seeking older verbal travelogs should consider.--Carolyn Alexander, Brigadoon Lib., Salinas, CA ...
