A Ride in Morocco Among Believers and Traders
Frances MacNab's 'A Ride in Morocco' contains the intriguing narrative of her journey on horseback through that country, at the turn of the century. No pioneering expedition this - rather, a leisurely ride between the major centres of population, dropping in on other Europeans along the way. Picture, then, a haughty British woman progressing on horseback from Tangier down to Marrakesh, enjoying a somewhat testy relationship with the native population and generally getting her own way. This is Ms McNab at her best - opinionated and brooking no nonsense, she rides imperiously among the inhabitants noting with a keen eye every detail of their lives and manners. She is, however, not blind to the beauties of the landscape, nor to the more endearing qualities of the people she meets. Her narrative retains a lasting charm and this facsimile first edition, published in 1902, will be welcomed by a wide readership.
