Peter Millar embarks on a literally reverse-engineered train journey through this still exotic, diverse and challenging North African country, struggling to maintain its unique blend of tradition and tolerance in the turbulent winds of the Arab spring. From the snake charmers and food stalls of Jamaa el Fna, Millar takes us to the ancient walled city of Fez, the wineries of the Meknes valley, cosmopolitan Casablanca, tacky Tangier, and the anomalous Spanish exclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, squatting on Morocco's Mediterranean coast like a counterpoint to British Gibraltar. "The culture and landscape of Morocco are showcased in this frequently humorous chronicle of Millar's journey by train through the country."--World Literature Today Jan./Feb 2015 "A well-experienced, well-written account of one of the few remaining stable countries in the Arab world."--Library Journal, Feb. 01, 2015
