Wildlife Warrior is a detailed insight into the life of Steve Irwin, an inspiration to my generation of (now almost fully grown) kids.

This book is full of depth, and leads us through Steve's early life, all the way through to his untimely death, with a devastating final chapter in which Steve's memorial service is recounted.

There were plenty of tears while reading this, as I remembered again what it felt like being 9 years old and finding out that my hero had passed. Even then, after days of g

The story starts with the shocking news the world received in '06. Readers then see how it happened, and then are treated to Steve's adventures: from his childhood, growing up, meeting Terri, becoming a father, filming a movie, and running a zoo. The closing chapter is of the funeral, bringing the biography back to the opening.

Steve Irwin was a hero of mine during my teens. I had one of those green Wildlife Warrior bracelets. It wouldn't surprise me if part of my decision to study Outdoor Educat

It's a nice overview of the events surrounding Steve's death, and his life too (though for that you could also just read Terri's Steve and Me), but it just had a little bit too much repetition and felt more like a 200-page praise of the man (which he totally deserves btw)

This book gave you a real insight into how everyone reacted to Steve Irwin's death. It gave you a bit of his background about how his Australia Zoo came about, but most of all it showed what Steve Irwin was all about, not about the fame and fortune, he was about looking after his family and the wildlife, whatever it may be. The last chapter brought tears to my eyes.
I remember exactly where I was when I heard on the radio that Steve Irwin had been killed by a sting ray barb. I was in my car on m

I started reading this biography to assist my son with a report. Long after the report is done and turned in, I found myself still reading this book. The author has a straight forward way of writing. I really enjoyed Steve's definition or outlook of "awareness." "We've got to be aware of what's happening around us and if we see something that worries us, we've got to do something about it." This author pays tribute to a true, "Wildlife Warrior," without making it so overly good the reader looses ...more

"Crikey, wadda beauty!"

Anyone who watched "The Crocodile Hunter" fell in love with the mad Aussie and we were all stunned when we heard about his death. He is still my youngest daughter's hero - also a little wildlife warrior in the making.

The book is a fitting tribute to a man who made a difference and a life well-lived and worthwhile because of the difference he made.

I thought that this was very informative. It is about Steve Irwin. From his childhood to his death he always had a love for animals. Sure he might of fed a crocidile while holding a one month old baby. He is my rolemodel. I recomend this book to people who knew who he was and like him.

I have always loved and enjoyed Steve Irwin and after reading this I had that much more appreciation for him and what he did. He is one of the few people that I can genuinely call my hero.
Brenda
Anything with Steve Irwin or his family, I love!! He was not only a great conservationist, but a wonderful role model for anyone. His life was amazing!
Trish
Followed the man for years...miss him so much. Was glad to get to read about the early days!
