Description
Now a Scribner Classics Edition, Ernest Hemingway's seminal writings on hunting--one of his greatest passions--introduced and edited by his grandson, Sean Hemingway, with a foreword by his son, Patrick Hemingway.
Ernest Hemingway's lifelong zeal for hunting is reflected in his masterful works of fiction, from his famous account of an African safari in "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber" to passages about duck hunting in Across the River and into the Trees. For Hemingway, hunting was more than just a passion; it was a means through which to explore our humanity and man's relationship to nature. Courage, awe, respect, precision, patience--these were the virtues that Hemingway honored in the hunter, and his ability to translate these qualities into prose has produced some of the strongest accounts of hunting of all time.
Hemingway on Hunting offers the full range of Hemingway's writing about the hunting life. With selections from his best-loved novels and stories, along with journalistic pieces from such magazines as Esquire and Vogue, this spectacular collection is a must-have for anyone who has ever tasted the thrill of the hunt--in person or on the page.
