Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Eminent Americans, Vol. 2 of 2: Comprising Brief Biographies of Leading Statesmen, Patriots, and Other Men and Women, Who Have Made American History

John James Audubon was born in New Orleans, on the 4th of May, 1780, of French parents in Opulent circumstances. From infantile years he was ever delighted with the song and plumage of birds; and his educated father fostered that taste which afterward led him to fame, by describing the habits of the ten ants of the woods, and explaining the peculiarities of different species. At the age of fifteen years young Audubon was sent to Paris to complete his education. There he enjoyed instruction in art, for two years, under the celebrated David. When about eighteen years of age he returned to America, and soon afterward his father gave him a farm on the banks of the Schuylkill, at the mouth of Per kioming creek, not far from Philadelphia His time was chie¿y Spent in forest roamings, with his gun and drawing materials. The study of birds had become a passion, and the endearments of a home, presided over by a young wife, could not keep him from the woods, whither he went at early dawn, and returned Wet with the evening dews.
