Morocco: Sahara to the Sea presents photographs of ancient peoples who lead a strongly independent way of life, whose customs have resisted incursions by the modern world but are nonetheless threatened. Choosing subjects in which history impinges on the present, where architecture gives expression to the country's past, and where natural surroundings offer a continuing commentary on the lives of the people within the landscape, Cross has assembled a stunning collection of more than 120 striking images.

Mary Cross is a trustee of the American University in Cairo and the American School of Tangier, a member of the advisory councils of the Institute for the Transregional Study of the Contemporary Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia and the Department of Comparative Literature at Princeton University, and a governor of the OTR lecture series of the Foreign Policy Association of New York.From Library Journal:
Photojournalist and essayist Cross (Henry James, St. Martin's, 1993) has created a stunning book that makes you immediately want to visit the exotic Moroccan kingdom. Cross spent three years in Morocco, and she truly captures the essence of the land and its inhabitants. She takes us from the endless sands of the Sahara to the pinnacles of the Atlas Mountains to the bustling cities. The photographs have been keenly edited to exhibit the mysterious beauty of the landscapes juxtaposed with the human portraits that show the everyday life of Morocco's diverse people. The preface is by Paul Bowles, an expatriate in Tangier, while Moroccan writer Tahar Ben Jelloun contributes the introduction. The book has an excellent bibliography and index. A beautiful work for public libraries.
