Publisher Description:

Published in 1943 after a mammoth effort by American Botanist Elmer Drew Merrill and his small staff, this technical manual remains one of the most comprehensive guides to the "bush tucker" of the South West Pacific Area. The information contained within this technical manual remains valid for the area bounding the Philippines, to Borneo and the Malaysian Peninsula down through Indonesia and New Guinea to Northern Australia.

The manual covers emergency foods, poisonous plants and assorted other plants which may prove valuable to an evader or a survivor in this environment.

This reprint of TM 10-240 is fully illustrated and reproduces the original manual precisely, down to the page count. This edition will remain available long after the originals have disappeared.
