There is nothing in the world of fine books quite like the first discovery of Audubon. The giant energy of the man, his power of achievement and accomplishment, give to him something of the epical force of a Walt Whitman or a Herman Melville...--Sir Sacheverll Sitwell

JOHN JAMES AUDUBON is undoubtedly one of the greatest nature painters and writers in history. In the 1830's Audubon also wrote his Ornithological Biography which described the habits of the birds he drew. He interspersed these bird biographies with episodes on life in America during this turbulent period. His writings are now considered a literary treasure. After being successful with the birds, as with any great artist, Audubon turned to another subject and undertook to catalog the mammals and other animals of America, which resulted in his magnificent Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. A man who traveled more than almost any other man of his time, Audubon made a trip to the “western regions” in the 1840's, his last great adventure prior to his death in 1851.Review:
