"Joanne Van Os was 19 when she first met the handsome and charismatic Rod Ansell, later known as 'the original Crocodile Dundee'. At 24, Rod was a legend in Australia and overseas. To Joanne, he was a god, a genuine outback hero. Soon they were married with two small sons, and Joanne was living the tough life of an outback 'bullcatcher' and cattle musterer. Ultimately, however, their marriage broke down, and it was then that Rod's life started to go off the rails. His life was tragically cut short in a shoot-out in which two young policemen were also killed. Containing wonderful colour photographs, Outback Heart is a deeply moving and powerful story that will keep you reading till the last page. Joanne captures the outback life but she also tells a deeply personal story of a love affair and a marriage, and the pain when it all falls apart." -- Publisher.
