A classic piece of travel writing, “In Morocco” is Edith Wharton’s remarkable account of her journey to the country during World War One and was subsequently published in 1921. With a characteristic sense of adventure, Wharton set out to explore Morocco and its people, recording her impressions and encounters.

She travelled - by military jeep - to Rabat, Moulay Idriss, Fez 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 this extraordinary country.
