Ernest Hemingway in the Yellowstone High Country
Compiles and inventories Hemingway’s experiences in Wyoming and Montana from 1928 through most of the 1930s and connects them with books and stories he worked on while in the West. Suggests the influence of the territory has been under-appreciated. Illuminates some unfamiliar personal relationships with ranch hands and background related to fishing, hunting, and such lesser-known Hemingway work as “A Man of the World.” Includes some oft-reproduced photos and many previously unpublished snapshots from the Patrick Hemingway collection at Princeton and the collection of Dink Bruce. Book would have benefited from tighter and better-informed editing.
