Reviews of The Beekeeper's Lament: How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America:



"You'll never think of bees, their keepers, or the fruits (and nuts) of their labors the same way again." Trevor Corson, author of The Secret Life of Lobsters

"A crackerjack story, the author struck gold. Nordhaus is a lively writer who, ably conveys the economics of the trade?and is just as able to describe the romance and miracle of honey. A smooth-as-honey tour d'horizon of the raggedy world of beekeeping." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
