From the beloved New York Times bestselling author of the National Book Award finalist The Soul of an Octopus comes a charmingly perfect gem of a book about the most exquisite and extraordinary of winged creatures: hummingbirds.

As one of the most beautiful and intriguing birds found in nature, hummingbirds fascinate people around the world. The lightest birds in the sky, hummingbirds are capable of incredible feats, such as flying backwards, diving at speeds of sixty-one MPH, and beating their wings more than sixty times a second. Miraculous creatures, they are also incredibly vulnerable when they first emerge from their eggs. That’s where Brenda Sherburn comes in.

With tenderness and patience, she rescues abandoned hummingbirds and nurses them back to health until they can fly away and live in the wild. In The Hummingbirds’ Gift, the extraordinary care that Brenda provides her peanut-sized patients is revealed and, in the process, shows us just how truly amazing hummingbirds are.

With Sy Montgomery’s signature “joyful passion” (Library Journal), this beautifully written and inspiring book celebrates the profound gift that hummingbirds are to our planet.

About the Author

Sy Montgomery is the author of more than fifteen nonfiction books, including the New York Times bestseller How to Be a Good Creature. She has been chased by an angry silverback gorilla in Zaire and swum with piranhas and pink dolphins in the Amazon. To research her books, films, and articles, she has worked in a pit swarming with 18,000 snakes in Canada and been hunted by a tiger in India. She has hiked the Altai Mountains of Mongolia’s Gobi desert in search of snow leopards and penetrated the cloud forests of Papua New Guinea to radio collar tree kangaroos. No place is too far to go to bring animals’ true stories to adults and children around the world. She writes for print as well as broadcast in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible at what she considers a critical turning point in human history.
