A beautiful collection of stories and observations picked up by a lifetime of walking among the villages and hamlets of England. Highly recommended for all lovers of nature writing. William Henry Hudson (1841 - 1922) was an Argentinian naturalist, author, and ornithologist. He was one of the founding members of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and is best known for his novel "Green Mansions" (1904). Other notable works include "A Little Boy Lost" (1905) and "Far Away and Long Ago" (1918), which has since been adapted into a film. Hudson is considered a national treasure in Argentina, and his legacy lives on in the form of an Italian town and numerous other public places named after him. Contents include: "How I Found My Title," "The Old Man's Delusion," "As A Tree Falls," "A Story Of Long Descent," "A Second Story Of Two Brothers," "A Third Story Of Two Brothers," "The Two White Houses: A Memory," "Dandy A Story Of A Dog," "The Samphire Gatherer," "A Surrey Village," etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
