He was one of the most colorful authors who ever lived, as fascinating as any character he wrote. "Papa" Ernest Hemingway ran with the bulls in Pamplona, observed and reported on the Spanish Civil War firsthand, avidly hunted and fished, and drank enthusiastically. For over twenty years, until his suicide, he resided in Cuba, a land that he loved and where he was deeply loved in return. This is a history of the profound relationship between country and man, as seen by an author who retraced Hemingway's footsteps, and toured the novelist and adventurer's hideouts and hangouts, all shown in exceptional photographs. Step into the Hotel Ambos Mundos, where he penned his masterpiece For Whom the Bell Tolls, and inside the Floridita, the bar where Hemingway met his friends and downed mojitos. Visit the fishing village of Cojimar, his boat Pilar, and most importantly La Finca Vigia, Hemingway's home--preserved exactly as it was when he lived there. A beautiful evocation of an age gone by, still wonderfully preserved, and an always-compelling writer.
