An audacious tale of murder, privilege, and servitude - of both humans and nature. A stunning work of imaginative fiction, Last Hummingbird West of Chile spins a tale of adventure that is in turn comedic, violent, poignant and thoughtful. Through the exploits of a young sailor born in questionable circumstance and a pair of murderous servants, as well as an assortment of other 19th century regulars, the vital subjects of today--race, religion, sexuality, environment--are framed in history and human culture.
