'American Roff Smith had been living in Australia for 15 years when he quit his job,pared his life to what could be carried in the panniers of his bicycle, and pedaled off in a 10,000-mile circuit of the continent.  By the time he coasted back into Sydney nine months later, he had discovered an Australia that eludes the casual traveler; Cold Beer and Crocodiles is his evocative, eventful report from the highways and byways of Oz, an affectionate portrait of his adopted country and its colorful people.'
