At the start of the nineteenth century, John James Audubon embarked upon an epic ornithological quest across America with nothing but his artist' s materials, an assistant, a gun and an all-consuming passion for birds...

This beautiful volume tells the story of an incredible artist and adventurer: one who encapsulates the spirit of early America, when the wilderness felt limitless and was still greatly unexplored. Based on Audubon's own retellings, this graphic novel version of his travels captures the wild and adventurous spirit of a truly exceptional naturalist and painter.

Gorgeous, whimsical & bit romanticized graphic novel on a 19th century French artist who documented 435 avian subjects in a young America as citizens razed forest, pushed nomadic Native Americans away & built a great nation using African slaves.
Welcome change from superheroes.
Passenger Pigeon say billion plus flock's destruction on fields explained why they were hunted down to extinction.
