Media reviews
Extensively researched, detailed, and skillfully written.-Library Journal "Patricia Tyson Stroud deserves the highest commendation for this superb biography. She has dug deeply into a virtual treasure trove of European and American archival sources... She has unearthed numerous illustrations of people and places. She details the exceedingly complicated relationships, intrigues, and political machinations within this royal family... This book will be of interest to all ornithologists with a historical bent, and to anyone interested in royalty in general or the Bonaparte family in particular. "-Canadian Field-Naturalist "Stroud captures the life of an important, but virtually unknown, contributor to American ornithology...captures the man's accomplishments, frustrations, and idiosyncrasies clearly and objectively."-Choice
