User reviews about this book
Reality is stranger than fiction
What can I say? It's Hemingway. I have been to Africa and felt its magical magnetic pull on my soul, so I get it. But I could never express it the way Papa does. I'm not a fan of shooting animals except with cameras, but concede it was a different time then; and he had respect for the creatures and a love for the land. His descriptions of the countryside, people, animals and of the hunt were spot on; but what I also found fascinating were his discussions of other writers - his contemporaries and those who preceded them. This is a must-read book. What took me so long to get around to reading it? Ah! My newfound fascination with Africa. I wish I could have known it as Papa did.
The chapter numbers wrong and made navigating the book confusing.
