About the Book

The author's boyhood in the Argentine pampas is chronicled in this book. The children in his family were warm and affectionate, and because they received their early education at home, they had lots of freedom to explore the natural environment around them. He had a keen eye for observation of birds and other animals because of his early love of the natural world. As he claims that many of the magnificent natural locations he knew as a boy are now permanently lost due to the expansion of agriculture, an elegiac tone is set. Despite the fact that this book was written 100 years ago, the author's views about the elimination of natural places still hold true today. An intriguing autobiography from 1918 describes a boy's childhood in the pampas (plains) of Argentina. The boy never loses his love for nature and eventually comes to have a mystical connection to it, despite engaging in all the cruel things young boys do while growing up in a remote area with older brothers. This book is the author's memoir from his time spent working in the fields of Argentina.

About Author

W. H. Hudson

W. H. Hudson was an Anglo-Argentine author, biologist, and ornithologist who lived from 4 August 1841 to 18 August 1922 under the name Guillermo Enrique Hudson. Hudson was the son of English and Irish immigrants Daniel Hudson and Catherine (née Kemble), who settled in the United States. He was born and raised in the little Argentine estancia then known as Ingeniero Allan, Florencio Varela, called "25 Ombues." The family built a pulper farther south, in Chascom's vicinity, not far from the lake with the same name, in 1846. While growing up in this natural setting, Hudson studied the native flora and fauna and observed both natural and human dramas on the region's then-lawless frontier. He then published his ornithological research in Proceedings of the Royal Zoological Society, at first writing in a mix of English and Spanish. Patagonia held a particular place in his heart. Hudson immigrated to England in 1874 and settled at St Luke's Road in Bayswater, where he lived for the majority of his life. In 1876, he married Emily Wingrave, a former singer, in Kensington, London, who served as his landlord.
