Book

“With impressive scholarship, delicacy, and respect Olson brings us close to the paintings and the man. At one point, she evokes how Audubon’s brown ink fingerprints on the back of some paintings make her feel that she is in his presence. This extraordinary book makes me feel the same way.”
-Urban Audubon
