About the Book



"First published by HarperCollins Publishers in 2010."



Book Synopsis



From ecologist Richard A. Jones and writer Sharon Sweeney-Lynch, The Beekeeper's Bible is as much an ultimate guide to the practical essentials of beekeeping as it is a beautiful almanac to be read from cover to cover.

"A glorious invitation into the depths of the honeybee hive." --Chicago Tribune

"Elegant, information-packed." --Better Homes & Gardens' Country Gardens

"Jones and Sweeney-Lynch explain the science and society of bees in clear, accessible language. And the recipes are admirably useful: honey scones, honey soap, honey hangover cures." --New York Times

Part history book, part handbook, and part cookbook, this illustrated tome covers every facet of the ancient hobby of beekeeping, from how to manage hives safely to harvesting one's own honey, and ideas for how to use honey and beeswax. Detailed instructions for making candles, furniture polish, beauty products, and nearly 100 honey-themed recipes are included.

Honeybees, which are critical in the pollination of popular US produce such as almonds, apples, and blueberries, are actually not native to the Americas. The honeybee that you see dancing from flower to flower in farms and gardens originated in Europe. The introduction of the honeybee began with European colonization of the Americas; before that, wild native bees, other insects, and some birds and mammals pollinated the native flowers of the continent. The honeybee's ability to pollinate crops, produce honey, and be easily domesticated precipitated the growth in beekeeping all over America.

Fully illustrated with how-to photography and unique etchings, any backyard enthusiast or gardener can confidently dive into beekeeping with this book in hand (or daydream about harvesting their own honey while relaxing in the comfort of an armchair).

This book has it all: history, science, recipes for honey and wax, and all the how-to's you could possible think of, with great color pictures.
