Audubon is taken gravely ill on his journeys through the forest, protected by his companions and by American Indians. Even while ill, and even when left almost alone after his recovery, he continues his seemingly endless quest to paint all the birds of America.
Ah, Audubon! I must say it's a very good likeness.

Audubon meets little enthusiasm for his work, but drives himself almost to death completing it. Having documented as many birds as possible, he plans a journey to Great Britain in search of a publisher.
