Life and Art in the American WildernessBook - 1993
John James Audubon--the dreamer, vagabond, romantic, and genius--was the archetype of the passionate and steadfast frontiersman. Combining meticulous scholarship with the dramatic life story of a naturalist and pioneer, Streshinsky reexamines the artist's journals and letters to tell the story of Audubon's quest, the origins of the American spirit, and the sacrifice that resulted in one of the world's greatest bodies of art: "The Birds of America". 22 illustrations.Copyright © Libri GmbH.
