Green Mansions (1904)
by W. H. Hudson
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0486259935, Paperback)
Modern classic tells the compelling story of Rima, a strange birdlike girl of the jungle, and Abel, the European who falls in love with her. The book owes much of its popularity to the mystic, near-religious feeling that pervades the story and the beauty of Rima's halting, poetic expressions.

A failed revolutionary attempt drives European Abel to seek refuge in the virgin forests of southwestern Venezuela. There, in the "green mansion" of the title, Abel encounters the wood-nymph Rima, the last survivor of a mysterious aboriginal race. The bird-girl's ethereal presence cativates him completely, but the love that flowers between them is soon blighted by cruelty and sorrow.
