Aborigines of the rainforest on pages 16-17 discusses how Aboriginal people in the area used the natural resources; a picture of a basket made from the 'Wait-a-While' bush; describes how some types of poisonous plants could be prepared in such a way to make the toxins harmless; The early explorers on page 18 noted that Aboriginal people were observed preparing plants and eating them without any side-effects but when the explorer Ludwig Leichhardt 'partook of the plant himself' became violently ill; it also describes how Aboriginal people in south-east Queensland would gather Bunya cones and eat the seeds raw or toasted
