First published in 1915, ''Birds and Man'' is a collection of interesting and entertaining personal anecdotes relating to birds by W. H. Hudson. This volume contains beautiful descriptions of nature and offers us a unique insight into the habits of birds, making it highly recommended for all lovers of nature writing and ornithology. William Henry Hudson (1841 - 1922) was an Argentinian naturalist, author, and ornithologist. He was one of the founding members of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and is best known for his novel ''Green Mansions'' (1904). Other notable works include ''A Crystal Age'' (1887) and ''Far Away and Long Ago'' (1918), which has since been adapted into a film. Contents include: ''Birds at their Best'', ''Birds and Man'', ''Daws in the West Country'', ''Early Spring in Savernake Forest'', ''A Wood Wren at Wells'', ''The Secret of the Willow Wren'', ''Secret of the Charm of Flowers'', ''Ravens in Somerset'', ''Owls in a Village'', etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
