"I'm bored! I'm tired! I'm thirsty!" That is all Miss B. hears from her students during a field trip to Great Pond on St. Croix in the USVI to look for a bird called Hope.  Little do the kids know that the the amazing story of this whimbrel, a species of shorebird, will not only take their breath away, but by the end of the day nothing will be more important than to see Hope for themselves. Based on a true story of a bird's annual journey that even scientists knew little about. Published by Little Bell Caribbean.
