Steve Irwin: The Incredible Life of the Crocodile Hunter
On September 4, 2006, Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray while filming at the Great Barrier Reef. Known as the "Crocodile Hunter," after his TV series of the same name, Steve was only 44, and his untimely death robbed the world of one of its greatest and most popular naturalists, conservationalists, and environmentalists.
Although an undeniably gifted broadcaster and consummate showman, Irwin was first and foremost an animal lover, and this book traces his extraordinary story, telling how his irrepressible energy and all-consuming passion for wildlife and the natural world caught the imagination of TV viewers all over the world, turning him into a global phenomenon. With astonishing photographs throughout, it looks back at the "Crocodile Hunter's" great adventure, celebrating this unique force of nature, and providing a fitting tribute to one of Australia's most colorful and much-loved sons.
