A look at Hemingway's love affair with the Wood River Valley
Ernest Hemingway first visited Sun Valley in the fall of 1939, and he kept returning for the rest of his life. He worked on "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "A Moveable Feast" in the Wood River Valley.
Some of his best years were in Idaho. But his final days were also in the home that he and his wife Mary lived in, along the Big Wood River.
The Hemingway House is managed by The Community Library as a "contemplative, creative, non-commercial space." It is the site of ongoing research and a residency program for writers, scholars, and artists.
Morning Edition host George Prentice dropped by to visit the house and took Idaho Matters along for the trip.
