‘Hemingway’s world was close and uncomfortable and itchy and sweaty and frequently exhausting . . . This stuff was too good to be wasted on school exams. I must be bold and fearless and go out there and do it myself’

Join Michael Palin as he journeys from the forests of North Michigan to the bars of Cuba in a quest to unravel some of the myths of Ernest Hemingway’s life. Along the way he encounters the running of the bulls in Pamplona, stands at the site of Hemingway’s plane crash in Uganda and feels the rush of marlin fishing on the Gulf Stream in this wonderful blend of pilgrimage and adventure.
