  • Great Morocco based travel writing

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: I have a thing about reading up on a place before I go. As we all do. Otherwise we wouldn't use VT.
    Anyway... some really good Morocco based books I've read are:
    By Bus to the Sahara by Gordon West.
    In Morocco by Edith Wharton
    The Voices of Marrakech by Elais Canetti
    A Year in Marrakesh by Peter Mayne, also resleased os 'The Alleys of Marrakesh'. Ergo I have two copies of the same text :(

    All of these books have a great sense of place which, whilst these aren't new books, is still recognisable.
