Accompanied by his fourth wife, Mary, famed American novelest Ernest Hemingway spent several months in late 1953 and early 1954 on his final safari in Kenya. Their time there came to an abrupt end in early January 1954 when they sustained serious injuries from two near-fatal plane crashes in East Africa. While recovering, and back home in Havana, Hemingway wrote his 'African Book,' which is by turns, an adventuresome, comedic, and thoughtful recounting of his final safari. It was part hand-written and part typed, with many of the pages heavily edited in Hemingway's hand. UNDER KILIMANJARO is the last of Hemingway's manuscripts to be published in its entirety. It represents a complete reading text of his manuscript, written as only Ernest Hemingway could write it.
