Summary
For centuries they have captured our imaginations, and are admired worldwide for their unsurpassed metallic, jewel-like plumage, acrobatic flight, and immense character. Yet hummingbirds have a precarious life, dependent upon finding sufficient nectar to provide the high energy their bodies demand daily. They live fast and die young-- in many different habitats. Dunn tells the colorful story of these fabulous birds-- their history, their compelling life cycles, and their perilous position in a changing landscape-- and the stories of the people, past and present, whose lives have been shaped by the zealous passion hummingbirds inspire. -- adapted from publisher info
