He was a man of many names and many lives, some invented and some embellished. But one thread followed John James Audubon through his life: a love of nature and an unquenchable thirst for adventure. Audubon depicts an eccentric character who became one of the fathers of modern-day ornithology, revered even today for his paintings of the birds of North America. Paging through the chapters of Audubon's storied life, illustrator Royer gives a sense of the American wild, as well as Audubon's wild desire to document it. Ages 13 and up.
