JOHN JAMES AUDUBON is undoubtedly one of the greatest nature painters and writers in history. I just got through reading Rhodes excellent biography John James Audubon : The Making of an American, which got me interested in obtaining a copy of Birds of America. 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. Audubon originally published the book by subscription.

John James Audubon (born Jean Rabin; April 26, 1785 – January 27, 1851) was an American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter. He was notable for his extensive studies documenting all types of American birds and for his detailed illustrations that depicted the birds in their natural habitats. His major work, a color-plate book entitled The Birds of America (1827–1839), is considered one of the finest ornithological works ever completed. Audubon identified 25 new species.

Lots of detail! I ordered this after checking it out at the library because I could tell it wasn't going to be a quick read. It's interesting and full of love as Audubon 's love for birds and life really come through. Letters written to family by him and his wife are a wonderful touch. This will take a while to get through, but I savor the enjoyment.

I was at an exhibit of his prints at the MFA in Boston and took a break to sit on a bench and observe the room and my fellow visitors. There was a copy of this book on a table and I began to look at it. I was delighted to find that Audubon was as skilled with words as he was with a brush. Traveling through America in the early 19th century and observing the people, places, scenery and wildlife with wit and humor. This book brings history to life.

I had not realized what a charming writer Audubon was. This is a superb selection of his writing as well as letters from his wife and other family members and friends. This book offers a glimpse of a vanished time in the United States when parrots were abundant, the passenger pidgeons still flew, and people were quite innocent in their butchery of animals. This edition includes some lovely colored Audubon prints.The Audubon Reader (Everyman's Library)
