From the time she was a child, picking up stuffed animals that had fallen from a department store shelf, to the day she stepped through the doors of the Humane Society of Santa Clara Valley in California, Terri Crisp seemed driven by destiny to save animals in trouble. Out of Harm's Way is the unforgettable story of how she began her life's work, and of the often miraculous, sometimes heartbreaking, but always courageous rescues she achieved along the way. In the darkest moments of disaster, Terri Crisp has generated the most lasting memories of her life. Complete with heartwarming photographs and an invaluable resource section for rescuing and aiding animals in disaster situations, Out of Harm's Way is her passionate story: the deeply moving, inspiring account of one woman's desire to give the greatest gifts of all - love, care, and unending devotion - to aid in the survival of all our animal friends, great and small.
