This is the story of the real Crocodile Dundee, a gripping biography jam-packed with adventure, romance, and misery.

Joanne van Os was just 22 when she met Rod Ansell. At 23, Rod was already a legend in Australia and around the world, having survived alone for two months without supplies in one of the harshest and most remote parts of northern Australia.

But Joanne came to realize that Rod was both a complicated and deeply troubled man. His life ended in tragedy - out of his mind on drugs, Rod became involved in a shoot-out in which a young police officer was killed.

Outback Heart captures the Territory life vividly: the dust, the heat, the struggle, and the larger-than-life characters. But it's also a deeply moving and powerful story of a love affair and a marriage, and the pain of it falling apart. Download and start listening now!

    " Interesting story of life in the outback of Australia but also to read of the life or Rod Ansell the authors' first husband. Rod was the idea behind the character "Crocodile Dundee" but his life deteriorated after using drugs and was eventually shot in a stand off with police. "
