From dust jacket: The author describes this book as an introduction and guide, but it is written by one who possesses, in addition to an immense knowledge of the coutry, a deep love for the land and its people. He provides an opportunity for all to become acquainted with one of the most fascinating countries in the world and with a people uncommonly endowed with the qualities of dignity, courtesy and hospitality who have preserved the greater part of their ancient tradition and picturesque customs. After a brief instruction on How to Behave in Morocco, there follows a conducted tour of Fez, a short history of the country and then a delightfully vivid description of Rabat, Tangier, Meknes and the Atlantic Seaboard. After Marrakesh comes a chapter on the Kasbahs and then the reader is taken to the South and next to the Middle Atlas. Finally there are descriptions of Tefilalet and the valleys of the Todra and the Dades. The book closes with a number of useful appendices containing information for the tourist.
