The Beekeeper’s Lament

How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America By Hannah Nordhaus

The honey bee is a willing con­script, a working wonder, an unseen and crucial link in America’s agricultural industry. But . never before has its survival been so unclear-and the future of our food supply so acutely challenged. Enter beekeeper John Miller, who trucks his hives around the country, bringing millions of bees to farm­ers otherwise bereft of natural pollinators. Even as the mysterious and deadly epidemic known as Colony Collapse Disorder devastates bee popu­lations across the globe, Miller forges ahead with the determination and wry humour of a true homespun hero. The Beekeeper’s Lament tells his story and that of his bees, making for a complex, moving, and unforgettable portrait of man in the new natural world.
