Robbing the Bees: A Biography of Honey. The Sweet Liquid Gold That Seduced the World by Holley Bishop
Robbing the Bees: A Biography of Honey. The Sweet Liquid Gold That Seduced the World

LittleBirdy, September 3, 2011

If you don't start off with a deep and abiding respect for the Apis Mellifera before you read Holley Bishop's Robbing the Bees: A Biography of Honey, you should be in awe of the wee pollinators and ambrosia-producers by the time you finish the last page. Lots of facts and historic lore show the research the author did, but the whole book in also filled with her affection for this industrious insect. At times a bit disjointed, as it jumps from personal memoir (her first hive froze and starved to death during a harsh Connecticut winter!), part biography (of professional bee keeper, Donald Smiley) and part natural history (with recipe finale), the book is nonetheless a delight, as well as an education.
