“This is the story of a crocodile hunt through the swamp plains of the South Alligator River, bordering Arnhem Land, the home of estuarine crocodiles, fearsome man-eaters which have thrived in this out-of-the-way region since ancient times.
Following the collapse of the Congo, once the world’s main supplier of crocodile hides, values soared more than 400 per cent during 1963.  Attracted by the money and challenge of the hunt, the author teamed up with Bill Dean, a professional crocodile shooter, and went after the big ‘gators’.  Keith and Bill met such characters as Yorky Billy who shot buffaloes from his horse at full gallop; Mick Liddy, the crocodile hunter who had a weak stomach; Donkey who traded his wives for handouts of food and liquor; Roy Moffat, the last of the beachcombers.”
