Strong Points: Interesting descriptions
Weak Points: Narrow focus
Posing an opening question, “What is Bush tucker or Bush Food?” the Bush Tucker site then goes on to give the answer—native food of Australian aborigines. Talk about your loaded questions! The site is packed with interesting observations that make it more than simply a niche site on the Web. For example, Captain Cook sought to protect his crew from scurvy and collected greens when he landed at Botany Bay. How about this, the most famous of the indigenous plants in the world today is the macadamia nut. At the site, one can also learn about numerous bush plants via pix and descriptions. Not a site for everyone, but if exotic foods and organisms are your thing, you’ll find something here to please you.
