Description Technical Specs About
 
Audubon - Life and Art in the American Wilderness is a biography written by Shirley Streshinsky. In 1802, an eighteen-year-old West Indies-born Frenchman arrived in New York City, fleeing Napoleon's conscription. His work would become inextricably entwined with the new world he so proudly adopted in his motto "America, my country."

Inspired by the primeval forests and the vast flocks of birds that thrived in them, Audubon spent the next several decades of his life painstakingly documenting the birds of the American wilderness. He traveled the back roads and bayous, searching out and studying the birds that were his pastime and passion. He spent long, silent hours observing them in the wild. he was no amateur orinthologist; rather, he drew his birds from life, and his work always carried the line "drawn from nature by J.J. Audubon."
