Africa was an obsession for Hemingway throughout his life. Long before he wrote "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," Green Hills of Africa, or his posthumously published novel, True at First Light (based on his final safari in 1953), he had been enthralled as a ten-year-old by news reports of the African expedition undertaken in 1909 by his boyhood idol, Theodore Roosevelt.
