“Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest” is an exotic romance novel by William Henry Hudson, first published in 1904. It follows an intrepid adventurer who travels into darkest south-eastern Venezuela, where he comes into contact with a wild forest-dweller called Rima. A fantastic tale of love and tragedy, this book is not to be missed by lovers of vintage adventure literature.
