This month the Silver Travel Book Club — proudly sponsored by Classic Collection — is reading Adventures in Morocco: From the Souks to the Sahara by Alice Morrison.
TV presenter, writer and adventurer Alice Morrison gives her own unique and personal insight into Morocco, the place she’s made her home.
When Alice Morrison headed out to Morocco, it was to take on one of the most daunting challenges: to run in the famous Marathon des Sables. Little did she expect to end up living there. But once she settled in a flat in Marrakech, she was won over by the people, the spectacular scenery and the ancient alleyways of the souks. Soon she was hiking over the Atlas Mountains, joining nomads to sample their timeless way of life as they crossed the Sahara Desert, and finding peace in a tranquil oasis.
Despite more than 10 million tourists coming to Morocco each year, there are remarkably few books about its people, their customs and the extraordinary range of places to visit, from bustling markets to vast, empty deserts. Alice makes sure she samples it all, and as she does, she provides a stunning portrait of a beautiful country. If you’re thinking of going to Morocco, or you want to recall your time there, Adventures in Morocco is the ideal book.
