Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Argentine author/naturalist Hudson is especially known for The Naturalist in La Plata (1892) and Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest (1904). Shrubsall (editor, The Writings of W.H. Hudson: The First Literary Environmentalist 1841- 1922: A Critical Survey, Edwin Mellen, 2007) prefaces excerpts from Hudson's collected private writings with a biographical sketch noting his exposure to gaucho life and work as an ornithologist. The foreword writer touches upon his mystical leanings. Topics reflected upon include: direct contact with Nature vs. civilization, birds as the most beautiful living things, the need to preserve them by educating the young, and writers. The volume includes a bibliography of Hudson's works and references on them, and photographs of Hudson's birthplace and grave in England.
