A review of the new book Picturing Hemingway’s Michigan (224 pages, Wayne State University Press, $39.95) by Christopher Walton, a Free Press special writer can be seen here. The book itself was written By Michael Federspiel who is a Central Michigan University history professor. The book has rich content and of course many photos (more than 250) of Hemingway’s early years. He spent his first 22 summers there with his family. His experiences from these times have ended up as the backdrop in many of his short stories and even some of his novels. Federspiel states in the book “No, Ernest Hemingway never really did leave northern Michigan. Instead, he carried it with him and gifted it to the rest of the world.”
