Reviews

"Rhodes has managed to do for Audubon what Audubon did for birds. . . in this splendid biography Rhodes has produced nothing less than a portrait of the United States in its formative years."
-The New York Times Book Review

"Panoramic yet intensely detailed. . . .[Rhodes] has conveyed the thrust of his subject's imagination and the force of his movement as if painting Audubon from life."
- San Francisco Chronicle "Rhodes has given us the most three-dimensional portrait yet of Audubon the man."
--The Washington Post Book World

"More than a mere biography: it is a comprehensive history of a man and his era. . . . Rhodes breathes life again into the world in which Audubon lived."
-Los Angeles Times Book Review
