Review Text

  • By juggler on 28 August 2017

    Really enjoyed reading this book. Wonderful language and very evocative of place and childhood. It transported me into nature, at a time when there were fewer of us clogging up the planet and more wildlife as a result. Not very happy though that he and his brothers were shooting so many birds - that was one of the things that went against the grain and seemed out of keeping with being a naturalist. Feels like a very honest and straightforward autobiographical narrative, not trying to hide anything.

    This is one of those wonderful books that readers come back to time and again. It features the description of a wonderful childhood amidst the natural wonders of the Argentinian pampas, written in a direct but elegant style, and Hudson makes the plant and animal life, in its varied forms, come alive. As a bonus, we get a revealing glimpse of a way of life now more or less gone from the earth, in some ways harsher than our own.

    An unusual boyhood and the self-discovery of a naturalist. Opened my eyes to a lifestyle and historical period of which I was unaware. Very readable. Written early 1900s as an old man.

    Perfect. Took me back to the same feelings I had for the natural world, that I had as a boy.

    I first read this book at school in the 1960's. It beautifully captures a landscape and time in history which is now long gone. Hudson wonderfully describes the characters and way of life in South America at the end of the 19th century from his own experiences as a young man living there. His memories of the rich wildlife, hardships of the time and political tensions are all vividly portrayed in this book. Whilst some of the language is slightly archaic, the book is very readable today, and leaves one feeling nostalgic for all that has been lost in the drive to produce beef cattle to feed North America

    This is a wonderful, evocative book and I think will particularly appeal to readers who know or have spent time in rural Argentina - his description both of the vast emptiness of the Pampas as well as the child-like excitement of the smallest of discoveries are especially well described. There are much weightier issues covered later on but that would be spoiling things. In my opinion an excellently written semi autobiography from a writer who only found real fame later in life. If you have any doubts it was when I bought it a giveaway on Kindle ..

    I've read a few WH Hudson books now because of this book. It's wonderful! Really not my normal genre but it's so captivating and really brings alive his childhood in Argentina back in the 19th century. As with all his books it does ramble in places but don't let that put you off! It's great. :)
