Hemingway\'s Guns
#1
I've just read a new book on the guns of Ernest Hemingway who was to many a very great man, and to himself the greatest he-man ever. I don't know how popular "Papa" is in the UK but for the middle of the 20th Century he was very popular with the fishing, shooting, drinking and womanizing crowd in the US.  I must admit that I number myself within that crowd.

The book is rather interesting and a good effort.  There are some errors re/Hem's life but no matter his fans will enjoy this book.  He was a great hunter and went on several months long safaris some with the famous PH Philip Percival.

Someone said that every red blooded American either wants to be like Hemingway or be liked by him.  Might be true.
