About this book

When a large wave unceremoniously dumped an enormous shark onto the rocks less than three metres away from eleven-year-old Theo Ferreira, the young boy was terrified. Fascinated by this thrashing monster from the deep, Theo's obsession with sharks was triggered and so began a lifelong association with these predators.

Initially intent on killing sharks, Theo earned a reputation as a ruthless and successful shark hunter, and slaughtered many Great Whites. But after an encounter with a formidable shark, dubbed `The Submarine', which refused to die, Theo converted from a hunter to a dedicated marine conservationist. No longer believing them to be killing machines, he ceased his attempts to destroy them and began to turn his energies into preserving these magnificent creatures. He is dedicated to educating people about the importance of sharks to our oceans at large. This book is testament to his unwavering commitment to this end.
