The Birdman of America and the World

July 7, 2014 With Richard Rhodes

John James Audubon was rumored to be the Dauphin of France who would have succeeded to the French throne but for the revolution. WRONG!! But of course he invented and perfected the new art of bird portraiture and lived a life full of adventure and invention. Rhodes, a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, did a great biography of Audubon and gave us this great discussion in 2005 before we went on to discuss his totally different preceding book about the Nazi killing squads.
