“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.

Book Description for Web Page Corey Wheelock, her best friend Chris, and her adopted two year old son Danny are enjoying a lakeside camping weekend when Danny is kidnapped. Tense days of searching follow; when no ransom note arrives, Corey tries not to fear the unthinkable. But when a handsome private investigator comes to her home with questions about the Christmas night a new-born baby appeared on her doorstep, a new fear is added. Danny is alive and well, but an unknown someone has received a ransom demand for his grandson. Earl and Yolanda, dangerously incompetent criminals, are not becoming rich and happy as easily as they had hoped. They blunder, they get both careless and unlucky, and almost inevitably their kidnap venture leads to two deaths. A fortune teller/psychic and her slightly retarded brother accidentally become a factor in Dannys safety, and Tommy Logan, the private investigator, suddenly finds his work has become far more exciting than his usual dull routine chores.

"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.
