VIDEO: Hemingway’s Idaho: Code, Companions, and Characters

Phil Huss, Sun Valley Community School

Ernest Hemingway first came to Sun Valley, Idaho in 1939 upon invitation from the Sun Valley Resort to promote the local hunting and fishing opportunities to potential guests. The celebrated author fell in love with the area and would return regularly, ultimately building a home in the community and creating life-long friendships with local outdoorsmen.

In this Tugboat Institute Summit 2018 presentation, Phil Huss, Upper School English teacher at Sun Valley Community School, shares Hemingway’s deep connections with the land and community in the Sun Valley area and describes the parallels between the “heroic code” that reappears throughout his works and Evergreen principles.
