“A Little Boy Lost” is a 1905 novel by W. H. Hudson. It is the charming tale of Martin, a young boy who walks a bit further from his house every day each day until he reaches mystical land full of talkative animals, friendly gnomes, and mist people. William Henry Hudson (1841 – 1922) was an Anglo-Argentine naturalist, author, and ornithologist. He was one of the founding members of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and is best known for his novel “Green Mansions” (1904). Other notable works include “A Little Boy Lost” (1905) and “Far Away and Long Ago” (1918), which has since been adapted into a film. Hudson is considered a national treasure in Argentina, and his legacy lives on in the form of an Italian town and numerous other public places named after him. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

In a city divided and broken, this revelation will set it on fire… Attorney Justin Glass’s practice, housed in a shabby office on the north side of Saint Louis, isn’t doing so well that he can afford to work for free. But when eight-year-old Tanisha Walker offers him a jar full of change to find her missing brother, he doesn’t have the heart to turn her away. Justin had hoped to find the boy alive and well. But all that was found of Devon Walker was his brutally murdered body—and the bodies of twelve other African American teenagers, all discarded like trash in a mass grave. Each had been reported missing. And none had been investigated. As simmering racial tensions explode into violence, Justin finds himself caught in the tide. And as he gives voice to the discontent plaguing the city’s forgotten and ignored, he vows to search for the killer who preys upon them.

"Little Boy Lost": "Little Boy Lost" depicts the life journey of an American male, as his studies in the chosen field of psychology, play a secondary role to the more profoundly influencing people, places, and events which he encounters along the way shaping his perceptions and beliefs. It is a story about the trials and tribulations of growing up as a man in American middle-class suburbia. It's a story told with brutal honesty, humor, and irony. "Little Boy Lost" strips away the male mystique and bravado and uncovers the fear, anxiety, and dark urges which many men experience, but don't discuss. It is not a book about men being from other planets. It is a book about an actual, educated, professional, relatively successful man who is far from perfect and who the author hopes other men will both relate to, identify with, and be inspired, as well as allowing the female reader to more completely understand the inner workings and emotions of their male counterparts.

She was vexed at the question, and turning her face away, refused to answer him. For though at all other times, and when he spoke of other things, she was gentle and loving in her manner, the moment he spoke of the Queen of the Mirage and the gifts she had bestowed on him, she became impatient, and rebuked him for saying such foolish things.
