Audubon: Writings and Drawings
Find other books by:
By John James Audubon

This is a superb combination of autobiography and observations on nature from the great outdoorsman and artist himself. His detailed notes on the behavior of various species of birds (the section called "Ornithological Biography") prove him to be a scientist as well as an artist. Of particular interest is his description of his own experiment to see whether vultures find their food by sight or smell. While modern studies have proven the opposite, this episode shows his logical, methodical mind. This book is a treasure for all lovers of birds and nature and especially all who admire Audubon's magnificent images of the "Birds of America."
