Destination Mecca (Hardcover)
'What was I?
'A writer, a traveller - and an outlaw in a sense.'
Idries Shah wrote this book before he became Idries Shah.
It's an adventure within an adventure.
On one level it's an immensely engaging collection of traveller's tales.
Whether stowing away on a smugglers' ship or having an audience with a king, it's a pleasure to spend time with Shah.
On another level, you'll see a young man seeking out the experiences he needs to work towards his own spiritual development.
So travel along with Idries Shah on his own personal quest to develop the intuition that would underpin his philosophical ideas.
