      May 18,  · For many years producers sought to make a film of William Henry Hudson's popular novel Green Mansions, but it wasn't easy. First of all, the book was a huge bestseller for decades; a screen adaptation was likely to disappoint fans of the novel on the one hand and, on the other, confuse those unfamiliar with the story. “The animistic overtones of the book, and its intimations of love and death, made a deep impression by the time of his death Hudson was generally recognized as a masterly writer on the natural world” (Drabble, , ). Published when Hudson was 63, Green Mansions remains his best-known and best-loved work. First published GREEN MANSIONS JUNGLE RESORT is located in Sauraha. Harihar Temple is a local landmark, and the area's natural beauty can be seen at Royal Chitwan National Park and Nagar gloryland-church.comon: Bodreni, Sauraha, Province No. 3
