The Nyoongar people had a very ordered way of life and their hunting and gathering patterns were guided by six weather-based seasons.  Aboriginal people sometimes had several names for the same plant species, often linked with the use of different parts of the plant.  The women collected 90% of the food which included roots, tubers, corms, bulbs and fruits.  If you are interested in sampling bush tucker, some plants (including some of those in this book) are poisonous and require extensive treatment to make them edible.  Many of the bush foods found in the South-west are included in this pocket book.
