Bees in America

How the honey bee shaped a nation By Tammy Horn

Bees in America is an enlightened cultural history of bees and beekeeping in the United States. Tammy Horn, herself a beekeeper, offers a varied social and technological history from the colonial period, when the British first introduced bees to the New World, to the present, when bees are being used by the American military to detect bombs. Horn shows how beekeeping and honey have influenced so much of our U.S. history and culture. American beekeepers will be grateful that Horn is sharing the story of their love affair worth the honey bee to the general population. Bees in America is a welcome respite from out fast-paced technology-driven society” – Joe Graham, editor American Bee Journal.
