Excerpt from the Review found at Textfiles.com:
John James Audubon (1785-1851) was an American ornithologist best known for his extensive bird drawings and paintings published as "The Birds of America" (1827-38). During the last years of his life he worked in collaboration with naturalist Rev. John Bachman on a book about North American mammals.
The Multimedia Audubon's Mammals CD-ROM by Creative Multimedia Corporation contains the complete text of Audubon's "Quadrupeds of North America" (published 1842-54) and includes over 150 full color lithographs of mammals by Audubon, mammal sounds from Cornell University's Library of Natural Sounds, and text by Audubon and Bachman. An introduction by the authors describes the geographic range of the survey as "Comprising the British and Russian possessions in America, the whole of the United States and their territories, California, and that part of Mexico north of the tropic of Cancer." Audubon and Bachman go on to state that "A considerable portion of the country to which our attention has been directed, is at the present period an uncultivated and almost unexplored wild, roamed over by ferocious beasts and warlike tribes of Indians.
Multimedia Audubon's Mammals uses the same DiscPassage search engine found in a variety of other CD-ROM disks (Monarch Notes, Family Doctor, Great Literature, Shakespeare, Multimedia Darwin, and Sherlock Holmes on Disk.)
Multimedia Audubon's Mammals is contained on an ISO-9660 disc and includes both DOS and MAC search programs.
