This picture-book biography tells the story of the 19th-century artist and explorer John James Audubon.
Most people know that he painted The Birds of America but many don’t know what an exciting life he led: narrowly escaping an earthquake, meeting with native peoples and witnessing flocks of passenger pigeons that literally darkened the noon-day sky. Armed with paintbrushes and canvas, Audubon searched the wild for birds and animals, and he captured many of them on paper.
