Then there was the short-barrelled explosion of the Mannlicher and the lion was going to the left on a run, a strange, heavy-shouldered, foot-swinging cat run. I hit him with the Springfield and he went down...' Returning to his love of the African continent and its wildlife, Hemingway captures brilliantly the thrill and excitement of the hunt for big game. In some of the most vivid, intense and evocative travel writing, and memoir of his career, he describes the vastness of Africa and the brutality of its 'sports', showing even in this slim volume why he was one of the great American writers of the twentieth century.Hide synopsis

Originally published serially in Scribner's Magazine, Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway's second non-fiction book, based on his 1933 safari in East Africa. The text is divided into four parts: "Pursuit and Conversation, " "Pursuit Remembered, " "Pursuit and Failure, " and "Pursuit as Happiness." In a similar style to his first non-fiction work, Death in the Afternoon, Hemingway interweaves his recounts of hunting various animals with his vehement criticisms of contemporary authors. As John Chamberlain wrote in his 1935 review for The New York Times, "With one hand he tears out the entrails of a gazelle and strips the skin clean; with the other he rips the hide from Malcom Cowley or Waldo Frank. It is the most literary hunting trip on record."
