Publisher's Summary

His second major venture into nonfiction (after Death in the Afternoon, 1932), 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 of 1933. Hemingway's well-known interest in - and fascination with - big-game hunting is magnificently captured in this evocative account of his trip.

In examining the poetic grace of the chase, and the ferocity of the kill, Hemingway also looks inward, seeking to explain the lure of the hunt and the primal undercurrent that comes alive on the plains of Africa. Yet Green Hills of Africa is also 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.

    "A Life Well Lived"

    Hemingway's account of a Kudu hunting safari in Africa between the wars is not one of his better-known works. But his ability to let the reader experience events through Hemingway's own senses is as strong as ever. This is a mesmerising story. I found the narration a little brisk for my liking, and slowed it down with the iPod software.

    "Good Story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book as the story is very interesting.
    Because of the style of the writing it is a little hard to follow at times. The author tends to wander off the track but it is worth staying with the story.

    "Green Hills of Africa"

    Stupidest book we've ever had to read. One of Hemingway's worst. Unless you are into killing people and learning what he ate for breakfast every morning, I'd skip this one.
