I enjoyed this book, though parts of it seemed slightly exaggerated (ie: as a boy Steve recalls "often catching and releasing a hundred lizards in an hour".)
I did like the passion that both Steve and Terri have for animals and the well being of the earth's ecosystems. I miss Steve all over again because he took such an active roll to help animals. Helping animals really was an immense part of his life - and what he did for animals would ultimately help human beings, too.
An easy read and a great
Absolutely amazing book and so sorry that he is no longer with us.
Great to read Steves memories, passionate and intelligent.

Australian tv-personality nicknamed "Crocodile hunter" for his crocodile handling.

Irwin died in 2006 when a stingray's tail perforated his heart while filming in Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

The environmentalist organization "Sea Shepperd" named a ship after him.
