"Green Hills of Africa” is a 1935 work of nonfiction by American writer Ernest Hemingway. It is an account of a month on safari he took in East Africa during December 1933. Accompanying Hemingway were his wife Pauline Pfeiffer Hemingway, a friend named Charles Thompson from Key West, Florida, a well-respected professional British hunter, Philip Percival, and a visitor Hans Koritschoner, an Austrian-born businessman in Africa. Green Hills of Africa is divided into four parts. In Part 1 the plot starts with Hemingway and a European expat in conversation about American writers. Part 2 presents a flashback of hunting in northern Tanzania with a description of the Rift Valley. In Part 3 the action returns to the present with Hemingway unlucky in hunting. In Part 4 Hemingway and some of his trackers arrive at a seemingly virgin country where he kills a kudu bull with huge horns. Hemingway’s rich description of the land and his passion for hunting combine to give Green Hills of Africa the immediacy of a deeply felt individual experience that is the hallmark of the greatest travel writing. In his foreword to Green Hills of Africa, Ernest Hemingway says that he is attempting “to write an absolutely true book to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month’s action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination.” Listen online to free English audiobook "Green Hills of Africa” on our website to experience the second Hemingway's work of nonfiction.
