Follow Ernest Hemingway's exploits on the Bahamian island of Bimini from 1935 to 1937, the very moment in time when the International Game Fish Association (under the author's co-leadership) was emerging. Covers Hemingway's role in the formation of the IGFA, his underappreciated seminal writing about competitive saltwater angling when the sport was still in its infancy, the amazing fishing he enjoyed on the island, and the way all of these experiences translated into the composition of his posthumous novel Islands in the Stream. This is the only book on this period in Hemingway's life and reveals unexpected dimensions to the Hemingway portrait that deserve attention, including his surprising humor, his advanced conservationist views several decades before the environmental movement even began, and his egalitarian ideas about his contemporary female counterparts in the big-game fishing world—challenging the usual portrait of Hemingway as a chauvinist with no personal rules, boundaries, or conscience. Includes beautiful vintage photographs of 1930s Bimini that have never been published in book form.

Ernest Hemingway casts a very long shadow – especially the one thrown over Ray Knight by the Bahamian sunset on Hemingway's beloved islands of Bimini. Using the late literary giant's terse aphorisms and mordant quips as springboards for his own lean and drum-tight prose, Ray Knight invites us to join him on a journey from Pamplona to Bimini, in the footsteps of his literary hero. This collection of short stories, anecdotes and excerpts from the author's novels runs the gamut of emotions, from pathos and tragedy to humor and unabashed sentimentality – from a moving and thought-provoking look at the ethical ramifications of euthanasia to a boxing tale that pulls no punches, and without which no homage to Hemingway would be complete. Whether you add an extra kick to your coffee break one tale at a time or settle down with a glass of rum and spend an evening 'In The Footsteps of Hemingway', you're in for an enjoyable and edifying read – and a great introduction to the author's full-length works. The Vet's Dilemma:- A personal look at one man's anguished choice between humanity and morality. What will he do? What would you do? The Tears of a Clown:- A clown's antics bring joy to thousands of children but behind the make-up is a face racked with pain. Monty:- A man's relationship with his car confounds his daughter and leads to a traumatic and deadly conclusion.. Shadows :- A man struggles for survival in a harsh and dangerous environment. Voices from his past come to haunt him. Will they save or condemn him? A Father's Love:- A father risks the wrath of his community and his life in a desperate attempt rescue his son from the horror of addiction. It Tolls for Thee:- A washed-up boxer is offered one last, desperate shot at the big time – will he risk his life for one final chance of glory? Right of Passage:- A young hunter faces the ultimate test – will he become a legend or just a memory? A sample chapter from 'The Mountain'... Felicia's Cabin:- A kidnapped woman faces up to her captors in this sample chapter from' The Hatcher File'... Walking With the Bulls:- The author recalls his experience in Pamplona in 1977 – a year of tragic events at the Festival of San Fermin Every Job in Town:- An amusing recollection of the author's time in Sydney during 1980, when Australia was a land full of opportunities for a young man... either to get rich or get into a lot trouble!
