“Marta Riquelme” is a short story by Argentinian writer William Hudson. Part of his “South American Romances” series, this volume is not to be missed by those with an interest in south American culture and folklore in general. William Henry Hudson (1841–1922) was an Argentinian ornithologist and nature writer. Other notable works by this author include: “Argentine Ornithology” (1888-1899), “British Birds” (1895), and “Hampshire Day” (1903). This interesting tale is highly recommended for fans of Hudson’s work, and it would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Not to be missed by those who have read and enjoyed others in the series. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
