Determined to paint every species of bird in the United States, John James Audubon, a painter born in France, became a central figure in the American national identity in the early nineteenth century. However, his American dream vanished along with the birds, as the industrial era dawned. Through the tales, myths, and ghosts of these now-extinct birds, Birds of America offers a reflection on political, environmental, and human rights issues.
