Annotation

Drawing upon nautical charts, war records, the Pilar log, and personal experience, Houk examines the physical setting of Part III, “At Sea” of Islands in the Stream, to uncover Hemingway’s extensive knowledge of boating and local terrain. Finds numerous correlations between real-life places and experiences and the fictionalized adventures of Thomas Hudson and the Q-boat. Houk himself navigates Hemingway’s course to validate the author’s geographical knowledge. Concludes by noting parallels between Andrew Geer’s The Sea Chase (1948) and the later Islands in the Stream.
