Booklist Review: "Photographer Lockwood saw his first alligator at the age of three. Later encounters with his older brother's pet alligator, and with the wild ones he found in his travels as he photographed the Louisiana wild, convinced him to devote an entire book to the species. These ancient reptiles are found in the wetland areas of the Deep South, where the author journeys in search of gators, gator farms, gator tourist attractions, and gator researchers. Lockwood gets firsthand stories from people who have survived alligator attacks--interestingly, most do not blame the animal--and mixes these with basic information on the alligator's natural history and role as a predator. Heavily illustrated with the author's photos, which range in mood from lyrical to illustrative to frenzied, the book presents a unique look at this popular American "dragon." --Nancy Bent"
