For a dozen years, perhaps the prime of his writing life, Ernest Hemingway resided in Key West, producing a consistent stream of important work that elevated his literary fame and cleared a path for the arrival and refinement of the Hemingway Myth. Travel in his footsteps and bask in the island magnetism that fueled the author while he wrote classics such as Death in the Afternoon and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro." Tour through more than seventy island locations that paint the perfect portrait of Papa's consequential time on the island with author Mark Allen Baker as your guide. Step back in time to Hemingway's Key West and stroll the town like an honorary member of the famed Hemingway Mob.
