Description: Birds were â€œthe objects of my greatest delight,â€ wrote John James Audubon (1785â€“1851), founder of modern ornithology and one of the worldâ€™s greatest bird painters. His masterpiece, The Birds of America depicts almost five hundred North American bird species, each imageâ€”lifelike and life sizeâ€”rendered in vibrant color. Audubon was also an explorer, a woodsman, a hunter, an entertaining and prolific writer, and an energetic self-promoter. Through talent and dogged determination, he rose from backwoods obscurity to international fame. In This Strange Wilderness, award-winning author Nancy Plain brings together the amazing story of this American iconâ€™s career and the beautiful images that are his legacy. Before Audubon, no one had seen, drawn, or written so much about the animals of this largely uncharted young country. Aware that the wilderness and its wildlife were changing even as he watched, Audubon remained committed almost to the end of his life â€œto search out the things which have been hidden since the creation of this wondrous world.â€ This Strange Wilderness details his art and writing, transporting the reader back to the frontiers of early nineteenth-century America.
