Written when Hemingway returned from his 1953 safari in Africa, and edited by his son Patrick True at First Light is a rich blend of autobiography and fiction, a breathtaking final work from one of the twentieth century's most beloved and important writers.

The book opens on the day Hemingway's close friend Pop, a legendary hunter, leaves him in charge of the camp. Tensions have heightened among the various tribes and news arrives of a potential attack on the hunters, forcing Hemingway not only to take on his new role as leader, but, equally important, to assist his wife Mary in pursuing the great lion she is determined to kill before Christmas. Passionately detailing the African landscape, the excitement of the chase, and the heartfelt relationships with his African neighbours, Hemingway weaves a tale that is rich in laughter, beauty and insight.
