A young roadrunner is cold and hungry. Does she dare go near the building where a cat and human live? In spite of fear, she tries. She not only finds food, but a bush to live in out of the weather. Later, she finds her reflection in the rear-view mirror of the shiny green truck and it becomes her favorite place to perch and observe the two acres below her.
There are other animals and birds who live in the secure neighborhood. So begins a long relationship of acceptance with the lady of the house and her green truck.
