'Scottish-born Alexander Wilson gave the new country his gifts, becoming the father of American ornithology and its first great bird painter.
Alexander Wilson's neo-classic style by its cool objectivity was admirable suited to painting birds; his accompanying notes from field study and personal observation set example for all who followed.  Mr. Plate's biography does justice to a fascinating man and a life of drama and mystery.'
