At this point of the book, I have read about Steve's earliest adventures and how he became what he is known as today, the crocodile hunter. We have past through the part where he meets the Terri and finds true love, and takes her on a week of adventure. Keeping Terri away from her family for a week from Oregon, in Australia she enhances her skills with nature, and becomes a sharper human. Before Terri and Steve become a married couple, they were at a site where there are multiple groups of wild hogs and they took a long a very good friend of theirs, Sui, Steve's dog. Sui got caught up with one of the hogs and fought it, and by the time Steve caught up with Sui, she was injured. That night the philosophy of life and death, worried Steve and Terri very much. It is not any ordinary dog to Steve, it is one of his closest friends, and he truly understood then what it was like to lose a close mate like Sui. The philosophy of love came up as well, as to how much Steve really loved his dog Sui, he and Terri, did not go to sleep until they saw her move her head which allowed them to believe that Sui may just need some time to recover. Terri believed that Sui broke her back, but she kept that a secret. Luckily by the next morning Sui was able to stand and make some movement, and that eased the pain for Steve and Terri, and by a month Sui was back to her old self.
Summary:Philosophy – What philosophical issues does the work raise (questions about goodness, truth, beauty, justice, humanity, love, meaning, life, death and God)? Why?
