Green Hills of Africa
304 pages, 2015
The most intimate and elaborately enhanced addition to the Hemingway Library series—presented with archival material from the Hemingway Collection at the John F. Kennedy Library, and with the never-before-published safari journal of his second wife Pauline Pfeiffer. First published in 1935, Green Hills of Africa is Ernest Hemingway’s lyrical account of his trip to Africa with his second wife Pauline. In examining the poetic grace of the chase, and the ferocity of the kill, Hemingway looks inward seeking to explain why he loved hunting and killing animals.
