KIRKUS REVIEW

Survival in the Okefenokee Swamp from birth to monstrous maturity isn't easy for the alligator; classified an ""endangered species,"" his prestige skin makes man his greatest enemy. How Black Jack was born and bred, how he established his own life and learned to avoid danger, tells the tale for all alligators in Mr. McClung's distinctive and effective individual-to-genre approach. The black and white illustrations are generally helpful but not attractive. A compliment to the Zim Alligators and Crocodiles.
