This inspiring children''s book is based on a South American indigenous story about a courageous hummingbird who defies fear and expectations in her attempt to save the forest from fire. The illustrated story is supplemented by a natural and cultural history of hummingbirds, as well as an inspiring message from Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai. The evocative artwork by internationally renowned Haida artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas complements this optimistic tale that encourages everyone to take responsibility for their home and the planet.
A retelling of an ancient Quechuan fable follows the hummingbird as she makes a valiant effort to put out the fire threatening her forest home, teaching her woodland companions that doing something is better than doing nothing at all.
