Their food was soon finished, and they had to subsist on a black seed like the natives called "nardoo."
Afterwards a supply of nardoo was given him; at which he ate until he could eat no more.
Even if we could get fish, I doubt whether we could do much on that and nardoo alone.
For a meal, they boiled some of the nardoo seeds, and then made for the main creek.
These are collected by the natives, and are known over most of the continent as nardoo.
King searched about and found a few small patches of nardoo.
King managed to live on the nardoo; it seemed to agree with him better than with his companions.
We gathered some nardoo and boiled the seeds, as we were unable to pound them.
King gone out for nardoo; Mr. Burke at home pounding seed; he finds himself getting very weak in the legs.
Here many natives were observed pounding the nardoo seed between two stones, which was then baked and roasted on the ashes.
