For three years, photographer Mary Cross travelled throughout Morocco, from the Sahara Desert in the south to the Rif Mountains in the north, visiting large cities, small villages, and the country's little-known, inaccessible regions. Gathered in this volume is a selection of her photographs, which seek to capture Morocco in all its remoteness, beauty and mystery. From mountain chasms to desert oases, from "kasbahs" to "souks", Cross chooses subjects in which history impinges on the present, architecture that gives expression to the country's past, and natural surroundings that offer a continuing commentary on the lives of the people within the landscape.

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.
