Green Hills of Africa
"In the winter of 1933 Ernest Hemingway and his wife Pauline set out on a two-month safari in the big-game country of East Africa, camping out on the great Serengeti Plain at the foot of magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro ... The author later recreated his experiences there in 'Green Hills of Africa.' Rich in description and refreshingly alive to the character, culture, and customs of the country, it is one of Hemingway's most revealing aesthetic statements; his writing, as Carl Van Doren remarked, "sings like poetry without ever ceasing to be prose, easy, intricate, and magical."
