William Henry Hudson (August 4, 1841 – August 18, 1922) was an author,
naturalist and ornithologist. Hudson was born in the Quilmes
Partido in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, son of settlers of U.S. origin.
He spent his youth studying the local flora and fauna and observing
both natural and human dramas on what was then a lawless frontier,
publishing his ornithological work in Proceedings of the Royal Zoological
Society, initially in an English mingled with Spanish idioms. He
settled in England during 1869.
Up at the League, says a friend, there had been one night a brisk conversational
discussion, as to what would happen on the Morrow of the Revolution,
finally shading off into a vigorous statement by various friends
of their views on the future of the fully-developed new society.
Every book has typos. Every book. But this book is different. This book
isn't perfect, but it fails well.
If you spot a typo in this book, send it to
(that's me) and I'll correct it in the electronic editions and in the next
copy of the print-on-demand book that's printed — nighinstantaneously.
What's more, as a thank-you, I'll include your name as a footnote on the
page you fixed for me, and at the bottom of the ebooks.
