America’s Other Audubon chronicles the story of Genevieve Jones, her family, and the making of the extraordinary 19th century Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio. At the 1876 Centennial World's Fair, Genevieve Jones was inspired by Audubon’s artwork to illustrate nests and eggs. When Genevieve died of typhoid fever, her family labored for seven years to complete the work. Featuring a foreword by Leslie Overstreet, a prologue by Joy M. Kiser, the 68 original color plates of nests and eggs, and more, the Jones’s story springs to life.
