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. :)
