Every middle-class girl that comes to the Northern Territory wants to find a lover to lick the unfamiliar red dust and scour the city from her body.
A chance to jump out of her city skin and harden her soft urban core.
Connie is a waitress working in a dead-end job; her life is going nowhere fast. One night, Rod Ansell appears on television, riding to fame as the real man behind the legend of Crocodile Dundee. Something in his wild eyes and tangled, sun-bleached hair makes Connie sit up straight and suck in her breath. She pulls her last beer and makes plans to track the legend.
With nothing more than a battered suitcase and a hunger for stories, Connie hooks up with anyone who can embroider her fantasies about Rod - her could've been lover . From right-wing pastoralists with their love of the land to leftie lawyers and dreamers with swags, Connie drinks with them all and embarks on a journey as wild and wayward as the Territory itself.
At the core of her quest is a curiosity about survival. What does it mean to live on the very edge?
Dark, provocative and sexy, A Lot of Croc is a thrilling ride deep into the heart of the Badlands. It s not so much bush out there than it is urban garage played out against a backdrop of red dust and a big, empty sky.
