Pocket Bushtucker is a new soft back pocket sized edition of Peter Latz's comprehensive Bushfires and Bushtucker: Aboriginal Plant Use in Central Australia, a consistent strong seller since its publication in 1995. This new edition distills the information into a handy field guide to the flora of Central Australia, with special attention given to the names and use in traditional Aboriginal culture. There are clear, helpful line drawings of all species, along with 16 pages of color photos. The text gives a description of each plant's habitats, a brief description of each plant's identifying characteristics, and is referenced to the relevant page of book's location map. All botanical names have been updated with an extensive index and cross- reference in the back of the book. Pocket Bushtucker is essential for any visitor to Central Australia and an excellent reference for amateur botanists and those interested in traditional foods, medicines and lifestyles.
