EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
The Green Hills of Africa is an autobiographical story documenting Hemingways emotions, sites, and experiences as he trekked through the wilds of southeastern Africa in search of rare and challenging game.
The opening scene describes Hemingways quiet frustration and nonchalant attitude when a truck drives by and frightens off the kudu he is hunting. This singular scene shows the anticipation, failure, and dry emotions that are expressed throughout the book.
Defeated, Hemingway returns to camp and on the way meets Kandisky, who frightened the kudu. Kadinsky joins Hemingways party and it seems that the two will get on quite well, sharing similar tastes in literature and opinion, but the more questions Kandisky asks, the more he wears on Hemingways nerves.
