4 Hudson, W.H. The Naturalist in La Plata: The Classic Study of the Argentinian Pampas. With 27 Illustrations by J. Smit.
New York: Dover Publications, Inc., [1988]. 
Octavo, softbound, 416 pp. Near-Fine. Illustrated. ŇTo the eyes of the uneducated observer, the pampas -- vast treeless plains stretching across central Argentina -- represent a monotonous and unending sea of grass. To author, naturalish and ornithologist William Henry Hudson (1841-1922), this land devoid of mountains, woods, lakes and riverrs was a fascinating showcase for natur'es masterpeices, a place where he spent his childhood studying plant and animal life and becoming an acute observer of countless human and natural dramas...Hudson's celebrated classic, reprinted here in an unabridged and unaltered edtion, offers an engrossing view of a region that encompasses 200,000 square miles and extends from the Atlantic Coast to the foothills of Andes. It is a world abounding in nature's noble and beautiful forms and filled with a polyglot of sounds -- from the varied cries of its mriad creatures to the whistling of the wind as it sweeps through the reeds and majestic grasses.
