Description: 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. Using material gleaned from Audubon's own journals, Jennifer Armstrong tells the artist's story. Along with the illustrations by Jos A. Smith are five of Audubon's own artworks.
