Selected Journals and Other Writings (Penguin Nature Classics)
xliii, 573 pp. "The fist one-volume selection of non-ornithological writings from one of America's premier naturalists and painters." "Gathered here are the fruits of his [Audubon's] literary talent: journals, letters, bird biographies, a memoir of his early years, and stories of the American frontier.... His enormous efforts resulted in the finest collection of American birds ever painted by a single individual. Yet readers of this anthology of his writings will discover an equally monumental achievement--a life dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of nature's beauty, a life artfully documented and fully lived." Colored illustrations included. Edited with an Introduction by Ben Forkner.Keywords: NATURE WRITING JOHN JAMES AUDUBON BIRDS BIRDING OUTDOORS SCIENCE NATURAL HISTORY
