Synopsis

John James Audubon by Patrice Sherman

Artist, writer, naturalist, and frontiersman John James Audubon explored America's wilderness during the early 19th century, observing and recording the wonders he found there. From the Kentucky frontier to the Mississippi bayou to the icy coast of Labrador, he took his sketchbook and journal with him wherever he went. His collected paintings, Birds of America, became one of the nation's greatest works of art and natural history. His journals document an era when American's forests still teemed with ivory-billed woodpeckers, Carolina parrots, passenger pigeons, and other species now extinct. Audubon was the first to sound the alarm over the destruction of the wilderness. Today, the Audubon Society, founded in his name, serves as his legacy, educating people about the value of biological diversity throughout the world. Readers will explore the illustrated world of John James Audubon in this colorful new volume.
