Item description for In the Tail of the Peacock - Travel and adventures of an English woman in Morocco by Isabel Savory...
Isabel Savory's first book, published in 1900, was a best seller sensation about a game hunting expedition she made with friends from Bombay up to Peshawar, to the Khyber Pass into Kashmir and then down to the Nigiri Hills. In less than a year she was trekking in Morocco and then published the book about her journeys there, in 1903. Isabel Savory travelled to Morocco in 1901 with a friend who took the pictures for her book "In the tail of the Peacock". She described the different places she visited enabling us to learn about the culture, the colours, the people, the souks, the beautiful skies and all the things that made Morocco a favorite exotic destination for travellers around the world. Her vivid descriptions can still bring us the flavours of Morocco as it used to be.
