Review From User :
A terrific book for anyone who has questions about the demise of the honey bee! Layman or Apiarist you will enjoy the well researched and humor injected narrative. I learned so much and it never felt like I was learning.
Award-winning journalist Hannah Nordhaus tells the remarkable story of John Miller, one of America’s foremost migratory beekeepers, and the myriad and mysterious epidemics threatening American honeybee populations. In luminous, razor-sharp prose, Nordhaus explores the vital role that honeybees play in American agribusiness, the maintenance of our food chain, and the very future of the nation. With an intimate focus and incisive reporting, in a book perfect for fans of Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation, Michael Pollan’s The Botany of Desire, and John McPhee’s Oranges, Nordhaus’s stunning expose illuminates one the most critical issues facing the world today,offering insight, information, and, ultimately, hope.
