|Morocco, Its People and Place|
|Edmondo De Amicis (18461908)|
|Morocco, Its People and Place, by Edmondo de Amicis (1878), a book of travel and description. As a member of the Italian ambassadors suite, the author enjoyed unusual facilities for observing the manners and customs of Morocco, while he received constant courtesies at the hands of the natives. Many unfamiliar phases of life and character are treated; the countryside, as well as all the large centers of population, receiving attention. The narrative is full of incident and worldly philosophy; and without pretending to be formally historic, vividly portrays the religious life and racial problems of this Moorish land.|| 1|
