More of a travel book than cookbook

This is one of the worst cookbooks that I have ever seen.
The indexing does not help with finding recipes.
The number of actual recipes in the book is very limited in spite of the size of the book (350+pages). Many Moroccan dishes are mentioned in the narrative, but the recipes are actually not included.
I also own "The cooking of The Eastern Mediterranean", another bad book authored by Paula Wolfert but I gave her another chance with this one, I experienced the same problems. She is obviously a collector of travel memories and recipes during her travel, no more no less.
No recipe photos, many Moroccan terms and names are misspelled.
Is it possible that Paula never cooked any of the recipes in her books.
