William Henry Hudson

William Henry Hudson (August 4, 1841 - August 18, 1922) was an Argentinan-British author, naturalist and ornithologist.

Hudson was born of US parents living in Argentina. He spent his youth studying the local flora and fauna and observing both natural and human dramas on what was then a lawless frontier. He settled in England in 1869. He produced a series of ornithological studies, including Argentine Ornithology (1888-1899) and British Birds (1895), and later achieved fame with his books on the English countryside, including Hampshire Days (1903) and Afoot in England (1909), which helped foster the back-to-nature movement of the 1920s and 1930s.

He is best known for the exotic romance Green Mansions (1904).
