The Nokomis Group

The Nokomis Group is owned and operated by Noleen Glavish and commenced trading in 1990 as a specialist publisher of high quality natural history books, portfolios, prints, gift cards and original artworks by Australian natural history artists.

We have now expanded to include a NEW BOOKS division in addition to those published by the Nokomis Group.   This came about in April 2018 as Andrew and Belinda Isles who own Andrew Isles Natural History Books made a decision to retreat from stocking new books and are concentrating on Antiquarian and Second hand books.  This new division is primarily a mail order business selling natural history books and we ship worldwide.  Our stock holding is substantial and if you click on the New Books tab above, you will see that we are offering a comprehensive range of natural history new books which is predominantly Australian but covers all parts of the globe.

Natural history subjects include birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrates, botany, gardening, ecology, insects, marine, biology, aviculture, entomology and conservation.   We are constantly adding new titles and will be happy to source any titles which may interest you if they are not already listed.

Regular mailings are sent to clients and if you wish to be on the list, please complete the subscribe form.

A landmark book which is  the culmination of decades of work describing the bush tucker and bush medicine of Kakadu National Park.  The authors and Kundjeyhmi people have worked closely to photograph and describe 149 plant species:  from the toffee-like gum of river wattle tosweet an-badju yams sought by singing children.  Each plant's description includes: Kundjeyhmi, scientific and English common names;  plant uses;  plant preparation;  its cultural significance.  The information is presented in simple, easy-to-read language, accompanied by over 500 spectacular photographs.

Over 60,000 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, bush medicine, and Australian flora.
