This entertaining and interesting book benefits from Kim Flottum’s extensive knowledge of beekeeping in North America and carries the subtitle An absolute beginner’s guide to keeping bees in your yard and garden. The aim of the book is to widen the appeal of beekeeping as an enjoyable and accessible pastime. The first three chapters cover an introduction to bees and beekeeping plus what to expect during your first year. Chapter 4 explains what you can make and do with beeswax – clearly explained recipes for making candles, soap and cosmetics, and Chapter 5 considers honey – delicious recipes for drinks, salads and desserts. This book would certainly encourage the beginner to get started.
