Book Description

5 Nov 2007
Few celebrities touch as many people as Steve Irwin did. He was loved by people from all walks of life and his vast efforts at conservation continue to make a difference all over the globe. Steve and Terri's story is not just one of taking a noble cause to a new height, but is also a fairytale love affair. When Terri, an American tourist in Australia, first laid eyes on Steve, she saw a real-life action hero. She was, however, disappointed to hear that his heart belonged to another. Steve then offered to introduce her to his girlfriend, whistled and presented his best girl: a Staffordshire bull terrier called Sui. Later, Steve took Terri on a unique first date - a canoe ride through the swamps at night. She describes how Steve climbed out of the boat into the crocodile-filled water and how she knew she was with the bravest man she'd ever met. Steve and Terri married in June 1992 and the footage of their crocodile-trapping honeymoon became the first episode of The Crocodile Hunter. WIth the opening of the Australia Zoo, the couple brought conservation to the people and became ambassadors for the native wildlife. Together, Steve and Terri changed the perception of conservation and sparked global interest in the animals of the Australian bush. Terri's book chronicles this work with their children Bindi and Bob and is her tribute to keeping Steve's memory and mission alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and heartfelt 6 Dec 2007
By Bunny
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I too read this book from cover to cover within 48 hours of receiving it. Despite there being a pile of books I had to read first, this one won through every time and to be honest I could'nt put it down.

Like Steve's life, the whole book is an adventure, it's funny and sad and touching too and you really feel as though what you're reading is the closest thing to Steve writing the book himself.

If you loved Steve before, you'll love him even more as you discover how hard he worked and how passionate he was about his family and the things he believed in.

I was delighted to discover from the book that Steve Irwin was exactly what I thought he was, a wildlife warrior and a really lovely human being, who although his life was short, packed more in than most people would in several lifetimes.

I will probably read this book again and again in years to come and found it well written and captivating, despite obviously knowing what the ending would bring.

I really admire how the book was written and especially how Terri managed to tell her background and Steve's in an entertaining and engaging way.

I'd recommend this book to everyone, it's a fascinating story and the fact that it is all true just makes it even more amazing to read.

At the end of the book, Terri writes about how there were many more stories included before the book was edited down to it's current size, I for one would love to read more of their adventures and look forward to their future publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 4 Dec 2007
I read this book from cover to cover within 48 hours of receiving it. I had moments of laughing out loud as well as a few quiet tears...this book was an adventure. Terri's passion and enthusiasim leaps from every page, she gives beautiful descriptions of the outback, you feel you're there. This book came across as very honest, pleasant surprises along the me one of the most admirable things about the book is when Terri writes about Steve's death, she describes it from her experience at the news rather than sensationalising it or giving any graphic details...she may prefers jeans, khaki's and boots but Terri Irwin's class and composure is evident in her book. I highly recommend this to other readers no matter what they think about Steve Irwin, I for one think history will be very kind to Steve and his passions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Personal yet presentable 30 Oct 2007
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
To be honest I've always wanted to read more about Steve and Terri Irwin and finally the chance arrived with this biography, yet is this book worth your time and money? For me, yes, it's a heartfelt tribute to the Crocodile Hunter with a simple flowing style.

But what might come across as a major flaw to many allowed something else, its demonstrated an honesty that will only go on to enhance the story of one of Australia's Heroes. Allowing the reader the chance to get to know the man behind the myth as told by the only person who could really represent this image to the public and demonstrated how fame was the last thing he sought.

To Steve it was all about the Crocs and as such he used all monies gained through his television work to buy land to help protect endangered species around the world. Hopefully this book will encourage others to join behind not only Steves campaign but others in general to save more of the worlds animals. To sum up this book might best be left to Steve and a comment he probably would have said to Terri had he still been about now "Good on ya Mate," and remember "Crocs rule."

5.0 out of 5 stars A heartfelt book that fans of Steve will love 29 Dec 2007
Like many people, I was saddened to learn of the death of Steve Irwin. I had enjoyed watching his shows, and always thought of him as someone who deserved respect for his conservation work and attempts to educate people about dangerous wildlife.

This books allows a glimpse of the man behind the TV personality, and I felt absorbed by Steve and Terri's adventures. Fans of the crocodile hunter may even recognise some of the incidents described! It all makes for fascinating reading.

The end of the book is of course dreadfully sad, and I even shed a few tears. Terri doesn't shy away from describing the moment she heard of Steve's death, and the contrast with the former happiness is painful to read.

Overall, a great book for fans of Steve, who want a snapshot of his amazing life.
