Ahhh, good ol' Les Hiddins!
I've got most of his books, and both series of his show "Bush Tucker Man".
It's a definite must for anyone considering camping out 'in the wild' in Australia, however unfortunately most of the stuff he talks about is only
specific to Australian native flora and fauna.
Unless they have Acacia trees in America, and widgetty grubs, it just becomes more of a good tv show than actual survivalist information.
As for Arnhem land, anyone wanting to trek through there, needs to apply for a permit through the Northern Land Council, as most of Arnhem land is
actually Aboriginal territory, and they have legal precedent to shoot you for tresspassing.
