If you like tall tales, you'll love Henry, the alligator—turned—head—waiter who becomes despondent when a pretty New York girl spurns his lovesick advances. Or Algy, the gator who survives a broiling in a furnace by his owners, who happen to think he's already dead and won't mind the heat. Or Two—Toed Tom, who may or may not have even exited, but who was blamed for everything from eating mules to terrorizing women and children.
This book is filled with amusing black—and—white photographs and is punctuated by a full—color section of photographs by John Moran, who has managed to capture the true essence of alligators in their natural habitat.
