Summary:
"In this new book ... we once again find our heroes working to improve the health of families on the Medicine Cave Indian Reservation. In this story, the focus is on Hummingbird as she pursues a 'giant plan' to grow huge fruits and vegetables that will provide abundant food to everyone. A bit full of herself, she believes that her 'giants' will make Native seeds and growing methods unnecessary. She is unaware, however, that Coyote is playing tricks that will teach her and her friends about the history and wisdom of the foods their ancestors grew. His schemes also bring them into conflict with a school bully who has other plans for their giant garden. However, with help from Sky Hear, Thistle, the teachers at Thunder Rock Middle School, and their favorite store owner Boo, they find ways to prevent bullying and restore harmony to their school."--P. vii-viii.
