Keister, D. (1995). Fernando's Gift. San Francisco, CA: Sierra Club Book.
Deep in the rain forest of Costa Rica, a boy named Fernando lives with his family in the tin-roofed house that his father has built. Like his father and grandfather before him, Fernando has come to treasure the wonders of the lush tropical land that his family calls home. But when he and his friend, Camina, look for her favorite climbing tree and find it cut down, Fernando learns that not everyone has respect for his beautiful forest.
