Travel is a wonderful way to leave the ordinary and experience the unusual and unexpected. Each country is filled with knowledge, culture, and a life totally different from the daily grind of an American. However, we Americans are accustomed to our freedoms and beliefs and travellers can easily get lost in dangerous underworlds they don't understand. Ann is on an exciting tour of the world and her next stop is Africa. She has lived the wild, free life, dumping and picking up new traveling companions and doing what she wanted. Now, though, she goes from the modern Western world to the mystic life of Africa. Africa isn't Europe and in Morocco, life goes by a different set of rules. At first, it seems to be a place for liberation. She can meet up with people from all over the world, exploring the towns and easily smoking as much hashish as possible. She drifts from friend to friend and house to house like a vagabond, doing what she wants and only what she wants. What she doesn't know is the free and easy drug life is a sucking vortex, ready to consume the unsuspecting American. While she is smoking all this hashish she meets the people of its seamy underworld, drug runners who need Americans to run the drugs into America and Canada. Bold from the ease with which she has smoked all these drugs, she decides to be a carrier. Her life soon becomes shadowy, having to move to out of the way places in the middle of the night to escape the police and hiding from possible capture. She is now in over her head yet not willing to drop out. This book opens up a new and interesting world. It's not so much the country that captivates but the dangerous subculture of drugs and daring. To many Americans, the ideal of doing drugs in public and being recruited for drug smuggling is the plot of an adventure movie, but not real life. They have grown up safe and secure in the land of the free and feel immune to such strange insanity. This book describes in detail another part of life, where drugs, death, and danger reign. While the story is fiction, these characters are not real; the situations are real to life enough the reader is engrossed by this risk-taking lifestyle. The plot and setting of The Travelers work together to create a story that will thrill the most jaded palate and gives the reader excitement without the risk of living out life in an African jail.

How do young 20-somethings and even younger get mixed up in international drug trafficking? This book explores the intrigue, danger and excitement as well as the influence of hashhish and other substances on smuggling drugs from middle east countries to the U.S., Canada and other countries where there is a lucrative market for them. This book obviously takes place before 9/11 and additional security measures that are in place. It describes how easy it was back then to bring drugs out of these countries and across our borders. Whole networks of young people were involved with lots of money behind them provided by the sales. Kids touring in the area were easily approached and recruited, looking for the excitement or the adrenaline rush and easy money, not to mention plenty of stash in the meantime. There were, of course, some people that got caught, but it seemed to add to the adventure or the thought of it for those being recruited. I was amazed at how easy it seemed to be to get young tourists involved, almost in a cult-like organization. It was equally amazing how little they seemed to worry about the possible consequences of their actions. They sometimes seemed not to be fully aware (probably because they were doing drugs daily) of how getting caught could ruin, or in some cases end, their lives. It was an interesting and at the same time disturbing read.

This book is a good story with interesting characters, I would recommend it for anyone interested in travel to Morocco and also interested in Muslim culture -- beware -- there is a great deal of drug use in the book.
