Thumb-Size Beauty

A new book not only collects images of all the world's hummingbirds between two covers but shows them to you life size. Maybe not as stunning as hummingbirds in the wild, but at least they stay still long enough to be seen clearly.

Part sudser for the Danielle Steel set and intellectual bait for Latin American studies majors, Carolina de Robertis’ novel The Invisible Mountain is a dazzling debut.
