Book Description Harcourt Brace & Company, 1961. hardcover. 1st edition. New York. 1961. Harcourt Brace & Company. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With A Small Piece Missing From the Top Spine. ISBN:. 212 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Ellen Raskin. FROM THE PUBLISHER - When Mrs. Napoleon Walker, the wife of a wealthy Negro doctor in Port of Spain, selects guests for her famous parties, she uses only one measuring rod - the color of their skins. When Mervyn Herrick, a brilliant Negro lawyer, contemplates a Trinidad governed by the Trinidadians, he wishes the British would rule forever. When Dr. Ivor Griffiths, the eccentric Welsh physician, thinks of the islandís British population, he wishes them all at the bottom of the sea. And when the Governorís aide-de-camp, who has been having an affair with the Governorís wife, tells his superior of the alliance, the old boy secretly relishes the thought of what is in store for his young subordinate. Frank Hercules combines these characters with humor and insight in his highly readable novel. To him Trinidad is its people, and his compassion for their ambitions, shortcomings, and human foibles is evident in every situation he creates. In WHERE THE HUMMINGBIRD FLIES, the West Indian island of Trinidad ceases to be the paradise it is often pictured, and becomes Trinidad as it really is - an island anxious for independence but fearful of cutting itself adrift in what might prove to be not merely an unknown but a stormy sea. inventory #7578 Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With A Small Piece Missing From the Top Spine.
