John James Audubon: The Making of an American

John James Audubon by Richard Rhodes

Richard Rhodes vividly depicts Audubon’s life and career: his epic wanderings; his quest to portray birds in a lifelike way; his long, anguished separations from his adored wife; his ambivalent witness to the vanishing of the wilderness. Overall, a magnificent achievement.
