Bushfires and Bushtucker: Aboriginal Plant Use in Central Australia


Out of stock

A land of mulga and spinifex, sand dunes and salt lakes, Australia’s Centre is a place of climatic and topographic extremes. In spite of this, the people who have lived here since the Dreamtime have done more than simply eke out of existence, they have lived a comfortable life rich in ceremony and culture. Bushfires and Bushtucker explains how the land’s first inhabitants have not been passive figures in the landscape but have actively worked and changed their environment, often by means of fire.
