Love this publication

After reading the book cover to cover once so far, I can see that it has a lot of beneficial information that could be used in everyday life

Great book, very useful!

A lifetime of research has gone into this book, such a great reference for Australian bushfoods

Eric Burns
Thank you

Clearly many years have been spent researching this information. Jamie has done all the hard work to identify, photograph and research these plants which most often do not appear in any other reference. Shame on the bad reviews as Jamie clear respects Aboriginal culture. Easy to read for all ages and learning abilities. A must for survival guide in Eastern Australia
