Synopsis: In 2000, Hemingway on Fishing became one of the most successful books in Lyons Press history. Now we are proud to introduce the perfect companion volume: "Hemingway on Hunting." Edited by Ernest Hemingway's grandson Sean, and with an introduction from his son Patrick, "Hemingway on Hunting" chronicles Hemingway's zeal for the hunting life, from Africa to the American West.Hemingway found in hunting courage and skill, qualities that he would admire and incorporate into so many other aspects of his life and work. He was able to isolate the sporting passion of hunting into writings that are now classic. Extensive selections from Green Hills of Africa, his famous account of an African safari, "The Short Happy Life of Frances Macomber, " "The Snows of Kilimanjaro, " and other important short stories, along with selections from his journalism, make this a definitive summary of a master sportsman, hunter, and writer.

From the Back Cover: The importance of fishing in Ernest Hemingway's life was matched only by his passion for hunting. Edited and with an introduction by his grandson Sean, and with a foreword from his son Patrick, Hemingway on Hunting chronicles Ernest Hemingway's lifelong zeal for the hunting life, from the plains of Africa to the American West. Hemingway found in hunting the virtues of courage and skill, qualities that he admired greatly and would incorporate into so many other aspects of his life and work. Hunting was not only a pursuit of great passion for him - a thrilling activity in its own right - but it also provided him with a model by which to explore fundamental issues of human nature. His unique ability to isolate these issues into prose has produced the most classic writings of the sport in existence. His famous account of an African safari "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," "The Snows of Kilimanjaro," passages about duck hunting from Across the River and into the Trees, extensive selections from Green Hills of Africa, and other important short stories, along with numerous selections from his journalistic pieces for Esquire, Vogue, and others, including such works as his "Tanganyika Letters" and his account of hunting in Clark's Fork Valley, Wyoming, make this a definitive summary of a master sportsman, hunter, and writer, and a must-have for anyone who has ever tasted the thrill of the hunt or who simply enjoys great writing. (7 1/4 x 9 1/2, 334 pages, b&w photos)
