"W.H. Hudson"

The novelist and ornithologist, William Henry Hudson was born in Buenos Aires province in 1841 of American parents. He studied the flora and fauna of Argentina before settling in the UK where he helped found the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). He wrote Idle Days in Patagonia which Chatwin later refers to as 'so quiet and sane it makes Thoreau seem a ranter.'
