Barefoot through Mauretania by Odette Du Puigaudeau( Book )
5 editions published between 1937 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Odette du Puigaudeau is best known for her major ethnographic work, 'Arts et Coutumes des Maures', a detailed study, in words and drawings, of the cultural world of the nomads of Mauretania. The present work explains how she came to write it. 'Barefoot Through Mauretania' is an account of her first journey across the country by camel in 1933-4, with her life-long companion, Marion Sénoines. The book records the adventures of the two women during that year, often with a touch of humour. Above all, however, it presents a picture of a way of life that has, as they feared, almost vanished, and their determination that it should be recorded. Odette du Puigauideau wrote a number of other books on different aspects of nomad life. such as the salt caravans and date markets, as well as articles on prehistoric rock-drawings, and a charming tribute to her pet leopard, Rachid."-- Publisher's description, back cover

El desvalido Gilles Mauvoisin se ve súbitamente dueño de una inmensa fortuna. Poco antes ha llegado a La Rochelle como polizón en un barco de carga noruego, siendo sólo un frágil huérfano sumido en la penuria que iba en busca de lejanos parientes para ponerse bajo su tutela. Pero su sorpresa es mayúscula cuando encuentra por fin a su tía luchando contra la hostilidad de los seres próximos. Su esposo, recientemente fallecido, ha nombrado a Gilles heredero de todos su bienes. No obstante, la plena asunción de sus legítimos derechos no está exenta de escollos y comporta una opresiva responsabilidad moral. Georges Simenon hace gala de su perspicaz conocimiento del alma humana al describir las perplejidades y tribulaciones de un muchacho apenas salido de la adolescencia. Los graves dilemas con que se enfrenta el protagonista a sus diecinueve años son narrados con la sensibilidad y simpatía que caracterizan al creador de Maigret
