This is Hemingway's East African safari journal.

'All I wanted to do was get back to Africa'

Green Hills of Africa
is Ernest Hemingway's lyrical journal of a month on safari in the great game country of East Africa, where he and his wife Pauline journeyed in December 1933. Hemingway's well-known interest in - and fascination with - big-game hunting is magnificently captured in this evocative account of his trip. It is an examination of the lure of the hunt and an impassioned portrait of the glory of the African landscape and of the beauty of a wilderness that was, even then, being threatened by the incursions of man.

'In a class by itself - the country at all hours shines bright and clear in these pages' Daily Telegraph

'The best-written story of big-game hunting anywhere' New York Times

MEDIA REVIEWS

A fine book on death in the African afternoon. . .The writing is the thing; that way he has of getting down with beautiful precision the exact way things look, smell, taste, feel, sound - New York Times

If he were never to write again, his name would live as long as the English language, for Green Hills of Africa takes its place beside his other works on that small shelf in our libraries which we reserve for the classics - Observer

This book is an expression of a deep enjoyment and appreciation of being alive - in Africa. There is more to it than hunting; it is the feeling of the dew on the grass in the morning, the shape and colour and smell of the country, the companionship of friends ... and the feeling that time has ceased to matter - TLS

“A dfferent world”

I read this book quickly because I wanted it to be over. It was the tenth Hemingway book I'd read, and possibly one too many. Reading it, I was continually hoping that he would be gored by a rhino, mauled by a... More
