Read in February, 2009

Extremely well-written, absorbing biography, not just for bird watchers. Most people only know Audubon killed a lot of birds in order to paint them. This book draws from letters and journals of many people in Audubon's life, not just his own. Very rich in details of life in the early 19th century, and the hardships and dedication of the artist.
