AN-ME ARRI-NGUN The Food We Eat

The authors and Kundjeyhmi people have worked closely to photograph and describe 149 plant 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 simple, easy-to-read language, accompanied by over 500 spectacular photographs.

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, and Australian flora.
