This issue fleshes out the life of the "American Woodsman," whose love of birds and animals in their natural surroundings, coupled with his astute ability to capture them on paper, with words and pictures, has left a tremendous legacy of information about our vanishing wilderness. Details of Audubon's poor history as a businessman, interesting particulars about birds and forest mammals, and fictionalized selections from the journal of Audubon's young helper bring this talented man to life. Drawing instructions and a recipe "for the birds" are included.
