Aboriginal Food andamp; Herbal Medicine
For perhaps fifty thousand years Aboriginal people of the Australian continent developed a unique knowledge of native plants and a deep understanding of the value of many animal products.
Bush Food is an exploration of these traditional skills and a compendium of the kinds of food eaten by the Aborigines. It indicates how food is caught or gathered, hunted or picked, how it is prepared and cooked, and what nutritional value it has. It considers, too, the use of natural products in traditional Aboriginal herbal medicine.
The book is lavishly illustrated with full colour photographs.
