Summary:
The fascinating and unlikely friendship of Ernest Hemingway and Gary Cooper is chronicled. From 1940 when they first met until their untimely deaths a mere seven weeks apart in 1961, Cooper and Hemingway connected, collided, clashed and reconnected in Idaho, New York, Cuba and Paris. Seen against the panorama of a turbulent American century, it is more than the story of a unique friendship; it is an exposition of the changing ideals of what defines a hero, what acts can be called courageous and what defines the sometimes fragile ideal of masculinity.
