"Beekeeping is a hobby any interested amateur could explore"-that's the message of this book which aims to take the mystique out of keeping bees. Alan Campion uses his own experiences 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 illustrated by many photographs as well as beautiful line drawings by Gay Hodgson, an enthusiast of small-scale beekeeping herself.
