Hudson, William Henry,

1841–1922, English author and naturalist, b. Quilmes, Argentina, of American parents. He spent his childhood on the pampas but developed a heart condition and finally emigrated to England in 1874. Hudson was a sensitive observer of nature, particularly of birds. In his books he describes plants and animals in a highly personal manner with great force and beauty. His best-known work, Green Mansions (1904), is a romance set in a South American jungle. Among his other works are The Purple Land (1885), The Naturalist in La Plata (1892), A Shepherd's Life (1910), the memoir Far Away and Long Ago (1918), and A Hind in Richmond Park (1922).
