1927 - From the Preface: As I look back upon my journey through Algeria and Tunisia and, especially now, as I go through my notes for this volume - notes jotted down or elaborated in hotels, Government offices, native taverns, wayside Moorish cafes and markets; among beggars and the descendants of buccaneers; in palaces, in the houses, huts and tents of Berbers, Kabyles and Arabs; before the mosques; during hunting expeditions on the plains or among the peaks of the Jujura; amid Roman or Phoenician ruins or out on the limitless wastes of the Sahara - I realize how deeply I am indebted to the assistance and advice of others for much of my material. The contents include: The City of the Pirates; Away to the Desert; In the Babylon of the Sahara; Through the Land of the Simoon; When Africa was Rome; Under the Spell of Numidian Kings; The Mediterranean of St. Augustine; The Heritage of Carthaginian Rulers; In the City of Dido and Salammbo; Among the Proud Highlanders of Kabylia; The Tale of Akub Ben Gmali; The Love of a Sahara; and The Riddle of North Africa.
