Download Audubon and His Journals, Volume 1 by Maria R. Audubon today to delve into the wondrous and colorful world of birds and the story of the man who dedicated his life to their study!
Audubon and His Journals, which was originally published in 1897, now features freshly updated text and a new preface by editor Maria Audubon. The journals are known not only as one of the finest accounts of ornithology, but also as a glimpse into the life and time period of John Audubon himself. This volume includes John Audubon’s letters and notes from the European Journals, the Labrador Journals, and the Missouri River Journals, each detailing his travels and discoveries in his own voice.
John Audubon is credited with discovering 25 new American bird species and 12 sub-species throughout his lifetime, and he is as revered for his biological contributions as for his beautiful watercolor paintings depicting birds in their natural habitats.
Audubon’s work was quoted by Charles Darwin multiple times, and nearly all ornithologists who followed were inspired by Audubon’s passion and high standards of study. He has been honored with his own museum, a Great Americans series postage stamp, the founding of the National Audubon Society, and has numerous parks, streets, and bird sanctuaries named after him.
