Hummingbirds symbolise wisdom and courage. In this inspiring story, richly illustrated by Michael Yahgulanaas, the determined little hummingbird does everything she can to put out the raging fire that threatens her forest home and demonstrated to her forest companions that doing something - anything - is better than doing nothing at all.
This parable, with its origins in the Quechuan people of South America, has become a talisman for everyone who is committed to making changes for good in the world. It has launched an entire social change movement in Japan and other parts of Asia, and images of the hummingbird are used to inspire responsible action on an international scale.
Beautifully designed and illustrated and lovingly embraced by two of the world s most influential leaders, this book will inspire every individual to act on behalf of the world s limited and precious resources.
