“Wild Food in Australia tells not only how one can survive in the desert or any other apparently inhospitable environment but, in a lighter vein, it also gives many new ideas for supplementing one’s daily diet with unusual; and interesting bush foods.  It throws a fresh light on the rich diversity of wild food plants in Australia and demonstrates how ;living off the land’, whether from choice or necessity, is indeed a practical proposition.
The colour plates have been specially painted by Charles McCubbin, one of Australia’s finest botanical artists.”
