When Terri Raines was twenty-seven years old, she took a
vacation that changed her life. Leaving behind her wildlife
rescue work in Oregon, Terri traveled to Australia, and
there, at a small wildlife park, she met and fell in love
with a tall, blond force of nature named Steve Irwin. They
were married in less than a year, and Terri eagerly joined
in Steve's conservation work. The footage filmed on their
crocodile-trapping honeymoon became the first episode of The
Crocodile Hunter, and together, Steve and Terri began to
change the world.
In Steve & Me, Terri recounts the unforgettable adventures
they shared -- wrangling venomous snakes, saving deadly
crocodiles from poachers, swimming among humpback whales. A
uniquely gifted naturalist, Steve was first and foremost a
wildlife warrior dedicated to rescuing endangered animals --
especially his beloved crocs -- and educating everyone he
could reach about the importance of conservation. In the hit
TV shows that continue to be broadcast worldwide, Steve's
enthusiasm lives on, bringing little-known and often-feared
species to light as he reveals and revels in the wonders of
With grace, wit, and candor, Terri Irwin portrays her
husband as he really was -- a devoted family man, a
fervently dedicated environmentalist, a modest bloke who
spoke to millions on behalf of those who could not speak for
themselves. Steve & Me is a nonstop adventure, a real-life
love story, and a fitting tribute to a man adored by all
those whose lives he touched, written by the woman who knew
and loved him best of all.
