This study provides a precis for each of William Henry Hudson's (1841-1922) books and gives an account of the development, writing, publication, reception and critique of each. Further, the work identifies those parts of each book which appeared first in journals and details the differences between those two versions and between first and rewritten editions of Hudson's books. Finally, the book dates the experiences Hudson wrote about and identifies the places and people he failed to name or to whom he gave pseudonyms.

Dennis Shrubsall has spent thirty years researching, writing and lecturing about W.H. Hudson. He is the author of the biography W.H. Hudson: Writer and Naturalist and many articles and essays including those in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography and The 1880s: An Encyclopedia of British Literature, Art and Culture. He is also the editor of four volumes of Hudson's letters, the two volume The Unpublished of W.H. Hudson: The First Literary Environmentalist 1841-1922, Birds of a Feather and, with Pierre Coustillas, Landscapes and Literati.Review:
"The originality and usefulness of this book will be patent to two sharply differentiated categories of readers: those who, having read possibly one or two of W.H. Hudson's many volumes, have had no opportunity to discover the diversity and richness of his works and have often been led to wonder what the variety of their supposed appeal may lie in; and those who, already familiar with his main writings, need a reliable guide to the whole oeuvre, and are anxious to explore the holes and corners of the vast territory which Hudson made his world." - Dr. Pierre Coustillas Professor Emeritus University of Lille "[This work] leads the reader through all Hudson's books and collections of articles, with three appendices to cover papers he contributed to the Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London, pamphlets and leaflets he wrote for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and articles by him not reprinted." - Dr. Martha S. Vogeler Emeritus Professor of English California State University, Fullerton "This... is a much needed addition to the bibliography on this great writer and naturalist,... Mr. Shrubsall's thorough research and sound judgment this work essential for scholars and for any reading willing to go into the world of such a valuable writer." - Professor Enrique M.S. Pedrotti Universidad del Museo Social Argentino"
