An-me Arri-ngun: The Food We Eat (2nd Edition)


Gary Fox and Murray Garde

A second edition of this landmark book is now available from October 2021. The book is the culmination of decades of work describing the bush tucker of the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, one of Australian’s best known tourist destinations.

The authors and Kundjeyhmi people have worked closely to photograph and describe 149 plant species: from the toffee-like gum of river wattle to sweet an-badju yams sought by singing children. Each plant’s description includes: Kundjeyhmi, scientific and English common names; plant uses; plant preparation; and its cultural significance. The information is presented in simple, easy-to-read language, accompanied by over 500 spectacular photographs.

Over 65,000 years, the Kundjeyhmi people of Kakadu have gained an intimate knowledge of the area’s plant foods. An-me Arri-ngun: The Food We Eat will fascinate all those interested in Aboriginal life and culture, bush tucker, Aboriginal plant names and Australian flora.
