He lived a life determined by the politics of the times, which meant that he couldn't have a job and earn money doing what he loved: drawing, painting and studying birds.
John Audubon suffered hardship, poverty, being separated from his family and even jail, to follow his calling.
He was over 40-years-old before the quality and magnificence of his work was fully appreciated.
|In Birds of America you can see Mr. Audubon's dedication and talent.|
It includes 497 life-size prints of birds and over 700 North American bird species.
His love of birds is captured in every page of this amazing book.
