W. H. Hudson was born in 1841 in Buenos Aires and seems to have been a sort of permanently displaced person. He moved to London in 1869 and wrote a series of remarkable books, most with a wilderness setting. In 1904, when he was 63, he focused on an Indian legend for Green Mansions, a memorable romance of the jungle for which he is now chiefly remembered. His epitaph reads, He Loved Birds and Green Places and the Wind on the Heath, and Saw Brightness of the Skirts of God. Download and start listening now!

    " This book has been sitting on our shelf for a long time (passed down by Matt's grandmother). It was intriguing at first but I couldn't get over the racist language and eventually had to put it away. "

    " A beautifully written romantic adventure in the jungles of Venezuela. "

    " As a teenager I thought this was a wonderful adventure! "

    " I might have liked this when I was 13.... The frame story reminds me of Heart of Darkness a bit. "

    " Hmmmm. The cover of the book makes me think in was written by a hippie and nothing in the book dispelled that thought. You can't judge a book by its cover. The author, although a naturalist, lived from 1841-1922. Well written, esp. if you want lots of description. "

    " Good read. Racist for sure, but illustrated for how western whites viewed people of other, native cultures. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 11/8/2010

    " "Writers are to their readers little new worlds to be explored; and each traveler in the realms of literature must needs have a favorite hunting ground, which, in his good will - or perhaps merely his egoism - he would wish others to share with him."

    " Nothing but pure romantic genius here that is so very good. Movie was good but not as good as the book. "

    " a long time ago. Need to read this now again. "

    " I was hoping this would be along the lines of the movie The Naked Jungle (a movie I adore), but I couldn’t get past the first two chapters, with its endless flogging of scene. I definitely want to give this book a second chance sometime. "
