Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bill Turnbull had no intention of becoming a beekeeper. But when an advertisement for beekeeping classes appeared in the family vet"s office shortly after a swarm of bees landed in Bill"s suburban backyard, it seemed to be a sign. Beekeeping turned out to be an even stickier operation than Bill expected, and he quickly learned that being enthusiastic about something doesn"t necessarily make you a virtuoso. Full of laugh-out-loud antics, lessons learned the hard way, and a passion for the beauty and importance of the infuriating, fascinating--and increasingly threatened--honeybee, Confessions of a Bad Beekeeper is both an introduction to the world of backyard beekeeping and a story about the transformative power of doing what you love--even if you"re a bit bad at it.
