Biographical notes:

W.H. Hudson, author and naturalist, was born in Argentina of American parents. While growing up in Argentina, he developed a passion for the wildlife of the Pampas, particularly its birds. He eventually became disillusioned by the effect on the Pampas's ecosystem caused by large-scale immigration of bird-eating Italians. He moved to England, but was unsuccessful in obtaining employment as a naturalist, although he did contribute a number of articles to various periodicals. He wrote short stories, novels, and nature essays. His best-known novel was Green mansions (1904), a romance set in a forest in Venezuela. He was also a councillor for the Royal Society for the Protections of Birds, and campaigned vigorously for wild bird conservation.
