Afoot in England, Paperback (February 2015)
Afoot in England recounts Hudson's wanderings from village to village across the south of England, from Surrey to Devon and Cornwall, and along the East Anglian coast. It speaks as powerfully today of the simple pleasures of the English countryside as when it was first published in 1909.

Birds in a Village, Hardback (December 2006)» View all books by W. H. Hudson
Includes W H Hudson's 1893 account of the birds found in a village in southeast England and compares the species and populations that occurred then with those that are present today. This title explores the differences in relation to changes in the countryside during the intervening century and through anecdotes gathered from local residents.
US Kirkus Review » Illustrated by Miguel Covarrublas who has been to the very tropical forests which formed the setting of this superb romance, and he has made three panoramas - or more accurately, three sections of one panorama, which - lithographed in full color - make the binding and the end papers. Inside the book are full pages in color and many black and whites. It promises to be one of the sensational gift books of 1936. (Kirkus Reviews)
