This inspiring childrenâ€™s bookâ€”a revised edition of the award-winning Flight of the Hummingbirdâ€”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.
