Tom Cole hunted crocodiles and buffalo, was a horse-breaker, brumby runner and drover, owned and managed cattle stations and a coffee plantation.
In this his sequel to 'Hell West and Crooked' Tom recounts his story of thirty years in New Guinea amongst "crocodiles, cannibals and coffee." Operating as the first professional crocodile shooter in New Guinea, Tom risked life and limb hunting from frail canoes in wild and sometimes unexplored country, working with everyone from cannibals to missionaries to government officials and the larger-than-life characters still drifting around the Pacific after the war.
