Overview


In this companion book to the PBS special Morocco: Quest for the Kasbah, renowned explorer and Adventures with Purpose host Richard Bangs explores the concept of the Kasbah—a fortress, a safe haven, and a place to exchange ideas with people from many different backgrounds. Bangs takes us on an insightful journey to beautiful Morocco, sharing his stories, adventures and reflections on why he felt "knocked over with a feeling of being a part of something remarkable and deeply human." Along the way, readers will discover what the modern Kasbah might represent for all of us in today’s fast-paced world: "a place secure in identity and thus unthreatened by those of different creed or kin."

Foreword by Peter Greenberg of NBC's Today Show, and featuring an 8-page color photo insert.

– Peter Greenberg, NBC Today Show

“If ‘adventure’ isn’t Richard Bangs’ middle name, it should be.”

– Rudy Maxa, Host of PBS’ Smart Travels

“Richard Bangs is Indiana Jones with a conscience.”

– Rich Barton, founder of Expedia.com

“Richard Bangs’ quests have evolved from haunting journeys down unknown rivers to new explorations of very old wisdom that just might help all of us with the challenges we are about to encounter.”

– Alex Chadwick, NPR
