FROM THE PUBLISHER - WYNDHAM LEWIS writes in his new book of a trip through Morocco to the Sous and the mountains of the Anti-Atlas. All of Mr. Lewis’s brilliant narrative gifts are poured into this lively and unconventional record of a noteworthy trip. His robust humor, fresh insight, and infallibly original point of view make him a stimulating traveling companion. We enter the old Cheerefian Empire via Tlemcen, passing through Fez, Casablanca and Marrakesh, and then going southward to Agadir and the zones of ‘dissidence’ in the fringes of Mauretania and the Rio de Oro. This itinerary covers all the most important parts of Morocco and its varied life. The record of the trip is crowded with incident and adventure, peopled with scores of picturesque characters, and alive with witty comments and shrewd observations. The pageant of modern Moroccan life in souk and Kasbah, in ancient cities and on the southern bled, unfolds before the reader. Here are manifold activities of the Europeans, from the achievement of the great Marshal Lyautey to the petty squabbling of latter-day filibusters. Here are tales of Mauretanian nomads and the Blue Sultan; adventures of the French aviators who fly south with the sand wind over the uncharted desolation of the Rio de Oro; invading companies of movie actors seeking exotic backgrounds for kiss-stuff and dime novel thrillers; gun runners and tribal revolts, legionnaires, the gallant battalions of the goums and the activities of the French officers in dangerous territory; and stories of the old Kingdom of the Moors, still one of the last strongholds of old Islam. Here is one of the most original travel books ever written, told by a master of narrative and descriptive prose. Bookseller Inventory # 5313
