An absolutely beautiful memory of childhood, growing up in the Pampas of Argentina in the 19th century. Sort of a precursor to 'my Family and other Animals', as the author intersperses magical natural history (he was a noted ornithologist) with entertaining portraits of local characters. Though writing this back in 1917, it's already sad to hear him comment "I only know that the old place...where his cattle and horses grazed and the stream where they were watered was alive with herons and spoonbills, black-necked swans, glossy ibises in clouds, and great blue ibises with resounding voices, is now possessed by aliens, who destroy all wild bird life and grow corn on the land for the markets of Europe."
There's a further depth to it, though, as faced with bereavement, separation from the country, illness...he delves into the magic of Nature, concluding that the happiness of it "had a cumulative effect on the mind...so that in my worst times...I could always feel that it was infinitely better to be than not to be."
Superlative writing. ( )

It took me a while to get into this book but once I started I managed to keep up the momentum. The story about the story was interesting but it is difficult to comprehend Hudson's lot until he deals with Darwinism and his own inclinations as a naturalist. Delivered as the story of one's boyhood, it is not until after finishing the book and reading the preface, one reflects and Hudson's genius comes to light. ( )

A classic is “Far away and long ago” (1918), the childhood memories of W.H.Hudson, of life in and around Buenos Aires in the middle of the 19th century. Hudson is, occasionally, a little heavy on description of nature and birds, but is at his best painting the Argentine society, the immigrants, the gauchos, the dictator Rosas, and all other things related to the people (or perhaps that is a personal preference). A great read for those who seek an accompaniment to the standard history fare that is available about Argentina.

4302 Far Away and Long Ago A History of My Early Life, by W. H. Hudson (read 17 Apr 2007) On Jan 6, 1946 I read the author's unforgettable novel, Green Mansions, so when I got a chance to read his 1918 memoir of his youth in Argentina, covering the years from his birth in 1841 to the time he was 15, I wanted to. He was extraordinarily cognizant of nature, especially birds, and while this does not sound like the kind of book which would excite--and for many pages I was not excited--on balance I found the reading worthwhile, especially in the final chapters. He began riding horses when he was six and spent much time looking and being enthralled by the pampas where he lived. On balance, this was good reading. ( )
