For those who have a passing interest in keeping bees, want to know what the hobby requires, and need a book that will take them through their first two years of the craft this is it. Alan Campion uses a lifetime of experience to describe in plain terms how to go about setting up a hive, what to do during the first few years and what to expect from your bees. The text is beautifully illustrated with line drawings by Gay Hodgson.
This is the best book for the absolute beginner. It is easy to read, clearly illustrated and is written in a style which makes it easy to understand.
