Hummingbirds have long been a symbol of wisdom and courage. In this charming story, a hummingbird makes a valiant effort to put out a raging fire that threatens her forest home trip after trip, her beak is filled each time withjust a drop of water. Her efforts show her woodland companions that doing something anything is better than doing nothing at all.The hummingbird parable, which originates with the Quechuan people of South America, has become a talisman for environmentalists and activists worldwide committed to making meaningful change. This retelling, enlivened by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas fabulous Haida-manga illustrations, is suitable for all ages of would-be activists.Although environmental responsibility often seems like an overwhelming task, The Flight of the Hummingbird shows how easy it is to startand how great the effect could be if everyone just did what they could."
