On foot in England
The Horizon Line.
Price: 21 euros.
Written at the beginning of the 20th century by the naturalist William H. Hudson (1841-1922), raised in the Argentine Pampas and clinging to the calm and acute observation of nature and its inhabitants, animals and, especially, birds since childhood, This collection of walks - on foot or by bicycle - that look out into the depths of the English countryside (Hudson lived on English soil since he was 32) is not a literary travel guide, nor does it pretend to be.
In fact, its author, a lover of ornithology, advocated just the opposite, for the trip without previous readings, for contemplating and discovering without any conditioning.
For this reason, the incursions into the landscapes and communities of the southern counties of England that Hudson recounts in these pages are more current than ever, inviting the purest exercise of exploration and contemplation.
