Birds of America

By Jacques Loeuille


At the begin­ning of the 19th cen­tu­ry, the dis­cov­ery of the wide-open spaces of the Unit­ed States and its incred­i­ble wildlife was key in the polit­i­cal devel­op­ment of the coun­try. Intent on paint­ing all the birds of Amer­i­ca, John-James Audubon became a cen­tral fig­ure of America’s nation­al iden­ti­ty. But as these birds start­ed dis­ap­pear­ing with the dawn of the indus­tri­al era, so did the orig­i­nal Amer­i­can dream. Along the banks of the Mis­sis­sip­pi, polit­i­cal, envi­ron­men­tal, and human rights issues are inter­wo­ven with the tales, myths, and ghosts of these now extinct birds.
