In MoroccoBook - 2015
"Edith Wharton journeyed to Morocco in the final days of the First World war at a time when there was no guidebook to the country. In Morocco is the classic account of her expedition. A seemingly unlikely chronicler, Wharton, more usually associated with American high society, explored the country for a month by military vehicle. Travelling from Rabat and Fez to Moulay Idriss and Marrakech, she recorded her encounters with Morocco's people, traditions and ceremonies, capturing a country at a country at a moment of transition from an almost unknown roadless empire to a popular tourist destination"--Page  of cover.
