“In Bush Tucker, Tim Low takes us on a fascinating journey through rainforests and deserts, along seashores and riverbanks, across paddocks and into our own backyards.  As we ramble, he recounts the story of wild foods in Australia through the diaries of First Fleet officers, exploders, pioneers, and early naturalists.  With a wealth of superb full colour photographs he shows us the bush foods eaten by the Aborigines, convicts and early settlers and describes how they were used then and can be prepared today.
We discover the delights of wild teas and coffees, native herbs and spices, wild mushrooms and greens, native fruits and the nectar of flowers.  We also learn that almost all Australian animals, birds, reptiles, and insects are edible and that many introduced weeds can be used as vegetables.”
