A Summer of Hummingbirds

Who is not intrigued by the beauty and energy of hummingbirds? In his recent book, A Summer of Hummingbirds, Christopher Benfey imagines a circular route of this amazing creature as it connects the genius of Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Martin Johnson Heade. This unusually creative theme beckons me to further study of the art and cultural landscape of the l9th century. I have so enjoyed this book!
