A Shepherdś Life – W.H.Hudson, aside from his work as an author, William Henry Hudson was a pioneering conservationist and a founding member of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Born in 1841 to Anglo-American settlers in Argentina, he moved to London in 1869 dividing his time between the capital and his second residence in Penzance, Cornwall before his death in 1922 at the age of 81.

This is the book that inspired James Rebanks’ (the Herdwick Shepherd) to write his autobiography, The Shepherd’s Life.
