In these early Hemingway stories, which are partly autobiographical,
men and women of passion live, fight, love and die in scenes of
dramatic intensity. They range from haunting tragedy on the
snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro, to brutal America with its deceptive
calm, and war-ravaged Europe.
Ernest Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899, the second of six
children. In 1917, he joined the Kansas City Star as a cub reporter.
The following year, he volunteered as an ambulance driver on the
Italian front, where he was badly wounded but decorated for his
services. He returned to America in 1919, and married in 1921
