Written from one person's perspective...I'm going to suggest, the author's records his own personal journey from Ceuta to Morocco. Taking the sights, sounds and smells of every village or town he travels through along the way. The author does well to describe each area of interest in this well conceived work of nonfiction, highlighting the troubled areas and the people me meets along the way, all from different backgrounds and cultures, and the observations me makes through each town he passes.

This very detailed and descriptive journey from Europe to
North Africa makes the reader feel like he is peeping into the personal journal of a curious tourist.
The narrative is dotted with observations that briefly expose cultural and political problems such as the Syrian refugee plight and ethnic disparities. The reader who has never traveled to this part of the world comes away more enlightened about both the beauty and the challenges of this geographic area.
