Ernest Miller Hemingway (1899 - 1961) was a novelist, short-story writer and journalist. Hemingway travelled in East Africa twice in his life and the experiences gave him material for several short stories and novels. He was probably not the greatest of hunters but he had a true love of hunting, nature and wildlife of Africa.
Hemingway always hunted Africa with Philip Percival who some believe inspired the 'Robert Wilson' character in 'The Short Happy Life Of Francis Macomber'. Others believe this character was modelled on Bror Blixen, who was a good friend of Hemingway.
