This book is very touching. It told a lot of stories I was already familiar with, but included lots of amusing and enlightening details. This book was clearly written by a woman in love, and about what she loved - both Steve and the work they did together. While Terri may not be an accomplished or entirely poetic writer, it's clear that her heart is in this book, and because of that it is a very worthwhile read.

I don't usually write reviews for books - just something I don't usually do; but this book, wow! I'm also not a usual fan of biographies but again, wow!

The Crocodile Hunter was someone I enjoyed watching and was terribly saddened,as all the world, at his passing. Mrs. Irwin gives such a wonderful picture of her life and that of hers with her husband. What a wonderful testament to their love for one another and their family.

Thank you for sharing Mrs. Irwin.

Wow! I enjoyed every moment of anything I saw the Croc Hunter do. So, I was interested in reading this book by Terri. No way was I prepared to read it straight through in two hours!!! Terri's writing is engaging, and friendly, completely the personality that comes across on the screen. The stores entwine her and Steve's lives, boith seperately and together. Their vision for Australia Zoo is presented throughout the fascinating stories and ties it all together. The glimpses into their family life are heartwarming and very real. I have great trouble describing how this one book is a an autobiography, a biography, a wildlife adventure, and a love story. But somehow it is, and beautifully so.
The world lost a true Hero with the death of Steve Irwin. But his work continues through Terri, Bindi, and Bob and the staff at Australia Zoo.
Terri Irwin has done a fabulous job and authored a book that truly honors her husband.

What a wonderful biography! This might be my favorite Christmas present of '07. It is a loving tribute to a wonderful "wildlife warrior." A definite must read for any fan of the show.

This is a wonderful and touching tribute to the life of Steve Irwin, written by his wife, Terri. Reading this really made me appreciate Steve and miss him all over again. Terri is an incredible person and the love she and Steve shared really shines through in this book. Be prepared to cry before this book ends.

I don't think I've ever read a book where I had such a lump in my throat because the littlest things in it made me want to weep. Just reading the forward alone put tears in my eyes. I found this to be such a wonderful, yet bittersweet, read because you know how Steve's part in the story ends yet the love shared between him and Terri is so heartfelt.

This book was definitely a bigger heart-tugger than anything I've read before. It's probably because I had watch so much Crocodile Hunter when it was on Animal Planet and seen a lot of talk-show interviews with them that I remembered a lot of the stories that Terri tells in the book. I could hear Terri's voice in my head narrating and had no problem replaying Steve's accent. Unfortunately, I couldn't imitate it when I'd read bits and pieces of it aloud to my husband. ;P

If you are a fan of the Irwins and all they have worked on, this book will make you laugh and cry and be completely amazed by such hard-working and dedicated people. I've never been more touched by a biography.

This is an extrodinary book that tells the life of a wonderful man that changed the world of animal husbandry. Being an avid animal lover and working to save the lives of many unwanted animals I watched all of Steves t.v. programs. He did so many great things and learning how it all started and what happened along the way was very inspiring.This is great read for anyone who loves animals and/or anyone inspired by great, world changing deeds.

A wonderful tribute to a man who was larger than life. We all miss Steve but none I'm sure so much as Terri. After reading this book and crying my eyes out at the end - I realize the world has truly lost a great man.

After I read someones review on this last week I picked it up for myself. I was not disappointed it was so great I read it in a day. I love the Croc Hunter and everything he stood for. It gave me such a bigger insight to what he believed in. Loved it!

Really enjoyed this. It wasn't anything earthshaking, but a nice remembrance of how the couple met, formed their family, and experienced their adventures together. I learned a lot more about how Steve Irwin conducted his career and his passion for wildlife & nature. Definitely an 'upper' in terms of how much influence a person can have while following their dreams.

I really enjoyed reading about Terri Irwin's life before and after she met Steve. I had no idea she hat a pet cougar in Oregon. I found her tribute to Steve very touching, especially the love he had for his children. The photos in the book encompass who Steve was and his life. I recommend this book to fans of Steve Irwin and his work with wildlife.
