Overview

William Henry Hudson was born more than 100 years ago in Argentina of an English father and an American mother. Rather than forcing their son into a conventional mold, Hudson's parents encouraged his love of nature. FAR AWAY AND LONG AGO recalls this idyllic childhood.

The Argentina of Hudson's boyhood was a poor and undeveloped wide open land where nature ruled. From a young age, he recorded his impressions of the countryside, particularly of the remarkable birds, swans, ostrichs, flamingoes and other species now sadly depleted.

"Hudson's work is a vision of natural beauty and of human life as it might be, quickened and sweetened by the sun, and the wind and the rain, and by fellowship with all other forms of life...a very great writer..the most valuable our age has possessed." --John Galsworthy

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
British author and naturalist Hudson spent the first 18 years of his life in Argentina, and, in 1918, he released this memoir of his numerous experiences there. As a naturalist and ornithologist, he provides great detail on wildlife, of course, but he also offers portraits of the varied humans encountered on his youthful adventures. A charming remembrance of childhood. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
