About the Author
TERRY MASEAR has taken time off from teaching English as a second language at UCLA Extension to devote time to researching and writing about hummingbirds. Terry and her network in Southern California rescue and rehabilitate over five hundred orphaned and injured hummingbirds each year.
"This rare and lovely book is destined to be a classic. I was riveted, charmed, delighted, devastated, profoundly moved, and taken to a magical place few people ever get to glimpse. It's one of the best books I've ever read about how rehabbers bond with the animals we save." -- Stacey O'Brien, author of Wesley the Owl
"This book is a delightful read. No one else could write such a wonderful memoir of care, compassion, and delight for these small creatures. Masear's writing is enthralling and captivating--and I hated for it to end." -- Joanna Burger, author of The Parrot Who Owns Me
"Fastest Thing on Wings is an exaltation of hummingbirds, but it's also the story of Terry Masear's exceptional heart and heroism in saving these fragile and remarkable creatures. In her beautiful account, every rescue is a revelation. Hollywood is full of stars, but few shine as brightly as hers." -- Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO, Humane Society of the United States
