W. H. Hudson (1841-1922)
William Henry Hudson was an author, naturalist and ornithologist. Born in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, he spent his youth studying the local flora and fauna and observing both natural and human dramas on what was then the lawless frontier. After settling in England from 1875, he produced a series of ornithological studies and later achieved fame with his books on the English countryside. Hudson is best known for his novel Green Mansions, published in 1904.
