16 in stock
This is the second edition of a landmark book originally released in July 2018 which represents the culmination of decades of work describing the edible bush foods of the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, one of Australian’s best known tourist destinations. The authors and Kundjeyhmi people have worked closely to photograph and describe 149 plants species: from the toffee-like gum of river wattle to sweet an-badju yams sought by singing children. Each plant’s description includes: Kundjeyhmi, scientific and English common names; plant uses; plant preparation and its cultural significance. The information is presented in clear, easy-to-read language, accompanied by over 500 spectacular photographs. For over 60,000 years, the Kundjeyhmi people of Kakadu have gained an intimate knowledge of the area’s plant foods. An-me Arri-ngun: The Food We Eat will fascinate all those interested in Aboriginal life and culture, bush tucker, bush medicine, ethno-botany and Australian flora.
